Cardinal numbers

Cardinal numbers refer to the size of a group. In English, these words are numerals.

0zero (nought)10ten  
4four14fourteen40forty (no "u")
5five15fifteen (note "f", not "v")50fifty (note "f", not "v")
8eight18eighteen (only one "t")80eighty (only one "t")
9nine19nineteen90ninety (note the "e")

If a number is in the range 21 to 99, and the second digit is not zero, one typically writes the number as two words separated by a hyphen.


In English, the hundreds are perfectly regular, except that the word hundred remains in its singular form regardless of the number preceding it (nevertheless, one may on the other hand say "hundreds of people flew in", or the like)

100one hundred
200two hundred
900nine hundred

So too are the thousands, with the number of thousands followed by the word "thousand"

1,000one thousand
2,000two thousand
10,000ten thousand
11,000eleven thousand
20,000twenty thousand
21,000twenty-one thousand
30,000thirty thousand
85,000eighty-five thousand
100,000one hundred thousand or one lakh (Indian English)
999,000nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand (British English)
nine hundred ninety-nine thousand (American English)
1,000,000one million
10,000,000ten million or one crore (Indian English)

In American usage, four-digit numbers with non-zero hundreds are often named using multiples of "hundred" and combined with tens and ones: "One thousand one", "Eleven hundred three", "Twelve hundred twenty-five", "Four thousand forty-two", or "Ninety-nine hundred ninety-nine." In British usage, this style is common for multiples of 100 between 1,000 and 2,000 (e.g. 1,500 as "fifteen hundred") but not for higher numbers.

Americans may pronounce four-digit numbers with non-zero tens and ones as pairs of two-digit numbers without saying "hundred" and inserting "oh" for zero tens: "twenty-six fifty-nine" or "forty-one oh five". This usage probably evolved from the distinctive usage for years; "nineteen-eighty-one". It is avoided for numbers less than 2500 if the context may mean confusion with time of day: "ten ten" or "twelve oh four".

Intermediate numbers are read differently depending on their use. Their typical naming occurs when the numbers are used for counting. Another way is for when they are used as labels. The second column method is used much more often in American English than British English. The third column is used in British English, but rarely in American English (although the use of the second and third columns is not necessarily directly interchangeable between the two regional variants). In other words, the British dialect can seemingly adopt the American way of counting, but it is specific to the situation (in this example, bus numbers).
