Russian[edit]

Russian cardinal numbers
 <  89 90 91  > 
    Cardinal : девяносто ‎(devjanosto)
    Ordinal : девяно́стый ‎(devjanóstyj)

Etymology[edit]

From Old East Slavic девѧносъто ‎(devęnosŭto), likely inherited from Proto-Indo-European *h₁néwn̥(d)ḱomt ‎(literally ninth ten), from *h₁néwn̥ (whence де́вять ‎(dévjatʹ)) and *déḱm̥t (whence де́сять ‎(désjatʹ)). The ending was likely influenced by съто ‎(sŭto, hundred). Compare Latin nōnāgintā and Ancient Greek ἐνενήκοντα ‎(enenḗkonta). This inherited form is unattested in other Slavic branches, which had re-formed the same compound from scratch as *devętь desętъ ‎(literally nine tens).

Pronunciation[edit]
