Balinese numbers

How to count in Balinese (Basa Bali), a Malayo-Polynesian language spoken mainly in Bali in Indonesia.

Numbers from 1-10 have basic (B), combining (C) and independent (I) forms. The combining forms are used in higher numbers. Some numbers also have high register (halus) forms, which are indicated with italics. There are also some numbers derived from Sanskrit that are used in religious documents. They are marked (S)

If any of the numbers are links, you can hear a recording by clicking on them. If you can provide recordings, please contact me.
