Numbers in Waray-Waray

How to count in Waray-Waray, a Bisayan language spoken mainly in the Eastern Visayas Region of the Philippines.

Waray-Waray has two sets of numbers: native numbers (show first), and numbers borrowed from Spanish (shown second). The Spanish-derived ones are used from numbers above 11 by most Waray-Waray speakers, with the exceptions of hundred and thousand among older speakers.

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