Mandaly, Would 909 be nefsa(nn)ef ak de "n" e ak de aksan grav nan de "e"? Would you spell 1001, 1002, 2001, 2002, 3001, 3002 an Kreyol Ayisyen? Mesi madanm.

Men wi zanmi'm.  Jan ou di a, se sa.  Ou va ekri li ak de "n", enpi ou va mete aksan grav la sou toude "e" yo.
Gen kèk moun ki ka ekri li an de (2) mo tou.

konsa: nèfsannèf oubyen nèfsan nèf

1001 - mil en
1002 - mil de
2001 - demil en
2002 - demil de
3001 - twamil en
3002 - twamil de

  1. Then is it more common in Kreyol Ayisyen to
    separate the numbers such as: desan de, twasan de, uisan de and nefsan de? As well as the thousands: mil de and twamil de, etc. By the way, how do you write in HC 8,000? I love you, you are great!!!!!!! Mesi anpil.

    1. Awesome :)
      Actually it is more common to see these numbers as a one-word term.

      8,000 → uimil(more common), and also uit mil

  2. Mandaly,

    Yon sel plis kestyon sou nimewo silvouple. Kouman w ekri:

    5,000,000 Se li "senkmil"? 6,000,000 Se li "simil" oubyen
    "sismil"? Mwen di ou mesi anpil.

    1. Dakò :)

      5,000 → senmil or senkmil (we use this last one more)
      6,000 → simil or sismil (we use this last one more)

      5,000,000 → senk milyon
      6,000,000 → sis milyon
