Spanish Loaned Numbers

Mark Complete

For 333 years, Spain heavily influenced the Philippines in many aspects of life as a colonizer of the country. This includes the widely used Spanish loaned numerals such as uno, dos, tres, and so on. Spanish numerals were adapted to the Filipino language by using their number names with the application of the way Filipinos make sounds of letters and spell words (see Filipino Language Pronunciation section).

Try reading and reciting the first ten Spanish loaned numbers below!

Keep In Mind:
The variations of the Spanish number names can be used instead of "-eynta." Example: Bentenuwebe, Trentá'y otso.

Succeeding numbers resonate the first nine numbers in the ones place. On a different note, succeeding numbers that are multiples of ten (20, 30, 40…) have similar ending syllables (-eynta / -enta), except for number 20.
Let the table below help you figure out the pattern of these numerals.
