Dothraki use a base ten number system. Teens are all specific compound words, and so are tens and hundreds. Thousands are slightly less tightly comprised: they are formed as word compounds. Ones, tens, hundreds etc. are connected by ma. Thus a large number like 2431 is written as "two thousand and four-hundred and thirty and one" which in Dothraki is akat dalen ma torken ma chisen m'at.
When numerals are used with a noun, noun follows the numeral and may be in either plural or singular - there is no difference in meaning either way. Numerals won't decline.
- Kisha'th alajaki chitor ma sen awasakis. — "We must fight against fourty-three screamers."
- Torthi vezhak zali torthi erinakes vichomeri. — "Fourteen horselords wish for fourteen respectable ladies."
Ordinals are formed by adding an agentive suffix /-(a)k/ to the last word of the number expression. They inflect like animate nouns and can be used alone like pronouns. When modifying a noun, ordinals are in genitive and follow the noun they modify.
- Azhas heffof anhaan. Anha zalak ma mekthikes ma chakat ma qazatakes. — "Give me jugs. I want the fifteenth one and the twenty-ninth one."
- Anha vemak janaan ataki fini vosta yera. — "I will approve of the first dog that will bite you."
