Lithuanian Numbers

Learning the Lithuanian Numbers displayed below is vital to the language. Lithuanian cardinal number convey the "how many" they're also known as "counting numbers," because they show quantity.

Grammar Tips:

In Lithuanian numbers from 1 to 9 and 10 are unique and therefore need to be memorized individually. Numbers from 1 to 9 has gender as well. Numbers from 11 to 20 are formed by using the following pattern: stem of number + -(io)lika.

Example: 11 – vien-uolika; 12 – dvy-lika; 13 - try-lika; 14 – ketur-iolika; 15 – penk-iolika.

The tens are forming by ending dešimt (ten):

10 – dešimt, 20 – dvidešimt, 30 – trisdešimt, 40 - keturiasdešimt, …, 80 – aštuoniasdešimt, 90 – devyniasdešimt.

Other digits are formed simply adding number name: 21 = 20 1 – dvidešimt vienas, 47 = 40 7 – keturiasdešimt septyni.

The hundreds are compound mumerals:

100 – šimtas, 200 – du šimtai, 300 – trys šimtai, …, 900 devyni šimtai.

101 – šimtas vienas; 114 – šimtas keturiolika,

758 – septyni šimtai penkiasdešimt aštuoni (700 50 8)

The thousands keeps same forming:

1000 – tūkstantis, 2000 – du tūkstančiai, 10000 – dešimt tūkstančių, 11000 – vienuolika tūkstančių,

429 381 – keturi šimtai dvidešimt devyni tūkstančiai trys šimtai aštuoniasdešimt vienas.

Numerals are declensing and so they takes the number and gender of subject in the sentence:

2011 – du tūkstančiai vienuolika.

metai (year, years; in Lithuanian always plural)

Nominative: 2011 metai, du tūkstančiai vienuolikti metai – year 2011;

locative: 2011 metais, du tūkstančiai vienuoliktais metais – in the year 2011.
