The numbers 1 to 99 are formed according to rules which are quite simple. Up to 12 the numbers will simply need to be learned.

The "teens" are formed by adding the suffix -zehn (10) to each of the numbers 3 to 9, but note that sechs (6) and sieben (7) are truncated to sech- and sieb- respectively. Thereafter the numbers up to 99 are formed in virtually the same manner, but und (and) is used to connect the two parts of the number.

The words for the "tens" are generated by adding -zig to the unit stem for numbers above 30 (the truncated forms of 6 and 7 are used).

The ordinals follow the pattern of adding the suffix -te to the cardinal stem, although in many cases the stem is slightly altered (see below).
