Usage notes

  • Milió, bilió and larger numbers are followed by de or d' unless a smaller number comes between milió, bilió, etc and the item being counted. Hence:
    • El gratacel va costar mil tres-cents quaranta-dos milions d'euros.
      The skyscraper cost one thousand three hundred forty-two million euros.
    • Un milió sis-centes quinze mil nou-centes vuit persones resideixen a Barcelona.
      One million six hundred fifteen thousand nine hundred and eight people reside in Barcelona.
  • Unlike cent or mil, milió, bilió and larger numbers are often preceded un or una when there is only one of them.
  • Catalan uses the long scale except when intentionally forming calques of short scale terms from other languages.
