In France it is:

10 dix
20 vingt
30 trente
40 quarante
50 cinquante
60 soixante
70 soixante-dix
80 quatre-vingt
90 quatre-vingt-dix
100 cent

<Snip>

BTW, the form "soixante-dix-neuf" is actually the the Roman numeral system: LX-X-IX.

Have a good day,

But, Wolf, if you're going to bring up Roman numerals, wouldn't 79 in French more logically be cinquante-dix-dix-une-dix??, i.e 50+10+10-1+10. (Assuming une is French for one!! I only did French and Latin for one year at school!!))


Language developemnt is only intermittently logical. :-)
