Quantifiers are determiners indicating quantity such as three, all and many.

## Numerals

As in many languages, numerals are caught between classes. In their most common attributive form they resemble common adjectives and therefore follow the nouns they modify:

nia vai

car six

six cars

bukim yem

king three

three kings

Kah numerals were designed to be easily distinguishable from one another:

 Kah Translation meng nil, zero kwa one sun two yem three pan four jom five vai six teo seven dia eight sasta nine nini ten

## Tens

Tens are created by simply combining the words for a numeral with the word nini for "ten".

 sun + nini sunini twenty yem + nini yenini thirty pan + nini panini forty jom + nini jonini fifty vai + nini vainini sixty teo + nini teonini seventy dia + nini dianini eighty sasta + nini sastanini ninety

When tens and basic numbers are combined, they are simply placed after one another:

 nini pan fourteen sunini teo twenty seven sastanini yem ninety three

It is allowed to add the word ai "and" in between as well:

 nini ai pan fourteen sunini ai teo twenty seven sastanini ai yem ninety three

## Hundred and up

The powers of ten up til one billion are listed below:

 Kah Translation mel hundred pol thousand dua ten thousand wisti hundred thousand bena million nungu ten million gos hundred million kas billion

Please note that this approach is different from the classic English decimal system, as it is dealing with powers of thousand instead!

Powers of ten are treated the same way as ten and form compounds with basic numerals. Compare:

 sunini - twenty yenini - thirty panini - fourty jonini - fifty vainini - sixty teonini - seventy dianini - eighty sastanini - ninety sumel - two hundred yemel - three hundred pamel - four hundred jomel - five hundred vaimel - six hundred teomel - seven hundred diamel - eight hundred sastamel - nine hundred

 sumpol - two thousand yempol - three thousand pampol - four thousand jompol - five thousand vaipol - six thousand teopol - seven thousand diapol - eight thousand sastapol - nine thousand sundua - twenty thousand yendua - thirty thousand pandua - forty thousand jondua - fifty thousand vaidua - sixty thousand teodua - seventy thousand diadua - eighty thousand sastadua - ninety thousand

In a way, the division of powers of ten is a decimal system just like the basic numbers:

 101  (ten) - nini 102  (hundred) - mel 103  (thousand) - pol 104  (ten thousand) - dua 105  (hundred thousand) - wisti 106  (million) - bena 107  (ten million) - nungu 108  (hundred million) - gos 109  (billion) - kas 1010 ( ten billion) - ninya 1011 ( hundred billion) - nikwanya 1012 ( trillion) - nisunya 1013 ( ten trillion) - niyenya 1014 ( hundred trillion) - nipanya 1015 ( quadrillion) - nijonya 1016 ( ten quadrillion) - nivainya 1017 ( hundred quadrillion) - niteonya 1018 ( quintillion) - nidianya 1019 ( ten quintillion) - nisastanya 1020 ( hundred quintillion) - suninya 1021 ( sextillion) - sunikwanya 1022 ( ten sextillion) - sunisunya 1023 ( hundred sextillion) - suniyenya 1024 ( septillion) - sunipanya 1025 ( ten septillion) - sunijonya 10100  - melenya

These numbers combined look like the following:

 11 - nini kwa 12 - nini sun 13 - nini yem 14 - nini pan 15 - nini jom 16 - nini vai 17 - nini teo 18 - nini dia 19 - nini sasta 20 - sunini 21 - sunini kwa 22 - sunini sun 23 - sunini yem 28 - sunini dia 36 - yenini vai 89 - dianini sasta 147 - mel panini teo 565 - jomel vainini jom ("fivehundred sixty five") 705 - teomel jom 5,824 - jompol diamel sunini pan 2,500,444 - sumbena jomwisti pamel panini pan

## Ordinal numbers

Ordinal numbers are expressed by adding the possessive marker na before the number in question:

nia na vai

car of six

the sixth car

bukim na yem

king na three

the third king

kwanya na teo

lesson of seven

the seventh lesson, lesson seven

## Unbound forms

Numerals can be marked with the nominal prefixes u- and a- in order to derive unbound forms of numerals:

 uyu sunPerson twothe two personsaya sunthing twothe two thingsuyu vai tengi kaichuperson six can escapeSix people managed to escape usuntwo:animatethe two personsasuntwo:inanimatethe two things, the pairuvai tengi kaichusix:animate can escapeSix (people) managed to escape

## Decimal fractions

Decimal fractions are characterized by a bastan "comma" like in most non-anglophone languages:

0.25  -  0,25 (meng bastan sunini jom)

0.347  -  0,347 (meng bastan yemel panini teo)

3.14  -  3,14 (yem bastan nini pan)

When the numbers get to complicated, they can be simply put after one another as well in speech instead of breaking them down in hundreds, tenths and such:

3.14159 - yem bastan kwa pan kwa jom sasta

## Vulgar fractions

Vulgar fractions are built by adding the root -mbe "part, share" to a numeral:

 sun + mbe sumbe one half yem + mbe yembe one third pan + mbe pambe one quarter, fourth jom + mbe jombe one fifth vai + mbe vaimbe one sixth teo + mbe teombe one seventh dia + mbe diambe one eighth sasta + mbe sastambe one ninth nini + mbe ninimbe one tenth mel + mbe melembe one hundred, percent pol + mbe polombe one thousand, promille

These fractions can be modified by cardinal numerals in order to express more complicated quantities:

 yembe sun two thirds pambe yem three quarters sunini-sastambe teo 7/29

## Quantifiers

Quantifiers in Kah behave like numerals in respect to their place in noun phrases:

uyu wi

Person much

many people

moso wi

milk much

much milk

wana yo

woman all

all women, every woman

wana sun yo

woman two all

both women

A list of common quantifiers in Kah is:

wi – much, many

wi tunti – more, more than

wi tio – most, most of all

vivi - too, too much

si – little, few

si tunti – less, less than

si tio – least, least of all

yo – all, every
