Numbers are stringed together as a single word (4866: тіłеміљвамѕтајессјес (tiremillvamstajezzjez) /tiɹemiɭvamstajezzje:z/). Note that years are always counted in hundreds and never in thousands (1112: ансеанстаансеδве (anzeanztaanzedve) /anzeanztaʔanzedve/). Be also aware that some consonants may change when certain numerals are stringed together. This change can be either from soft to hard consonant or from hard to soft consonant. These changes also happens inside nouns in numerical plural.
