Swedish numbers


Nio (9) and tio (10) are often pronounced nie and tie respectively.

For numbers that end in -tio, other than tio (10) itself, the final o is usually dropped.

So trettio is pronounced tretti, femtio is pronounced femti, sjuttio is pronounced sjutti, etc.

For fyrtio (40), not only is the final o usually dropped in speech; the number is pronounced förti(o).

Numbers are always written without spaces.
