Note: There is no concept of million in Gujarati

 

While reading a number of more than two digits, no and is required as in English. Examples:

bso Ag8ois]aer

, {a8 jhar 2so isTyasI

,, pa&c la`, A7ar hjar, nvso pa&c

 

However, while doing counting the conjunction ne may be used while reading the last two digits. If the penultimate digit is 0 (zero) the ne may be used with the last digit. Examples:

bsone Ag8ois]aer

, {a8 jhar 2sone isTyasI

,, pa&c la`, A7ar hjar, nvsone pa&c

 

Ordinals

The ordinals behave like adjectives and agree with the nouns in gender.
