        Shalts is a language created to try and replicate the English language. It follows the huge importation of Latin, Greek, and Germanic roots into one language. It was not to sound just like English, but rather be structurally similar and have a fluency of sounding like English to non-native English speakers. It did not work completely and became more like Dutch rather than English, but that means it was closer than Spanish or most conlangs. Anyway, this site is to help breed understanding of this language and spread its popularity.

For 1-9 - adjective form

After that you just multiply with pon and add with und
27 - duc pon diec und septuc
96 - novec pon diec un sec
576 - kinkec pon diec pon diec und septuc pon diec un sec

As you can see, it is a mouthful, so if native speakers existed, they probably wouldn't normally go beyond 100 and would round to tens.
