### Building Blocks: Understanding Polish Numbers[edit | edit source]

Now that we've got our list of numbers, let's explore how numbers are constructed in Polish.

1. **From 1 to 20**: These are unique words that you must memorize, as they do not follow a specific pattern.

2. **Tens (20, 30, 40, etc.)**: Numbers like 20 (dwadzieścia), 30 (trzydzieści), etc., serve as the base for building higher numbers.

3. **Combining Numbers**: To form numbers between the tens, you combine the tens with the units. For example:

- 21 is "dwadzieścia jeden" (twenty-one) – you combine "dwadzieścia" (twenty) with "jeden" (one).

- 35 is "trzydzieści pięć" (thirty-five) – you combine "trzydzieści" (thirty) with "pięć" (five).

Let's illustrate this with more examples:

Polish | Pronunciation | English |
---|---|---|

23 | dwadzieścia trzy | twenty-three |

34 | trzydzieści cztery | thirty-four |

47 | czterdzieści siedem | forty-seven |

58 | pięćdziesiąt osiem | fifty-eight |

69 | sześćdziesiąt dziewięć | sixty-nine |

74 | siedemdziesiąt cztery | seventy-four |

86 | osiemdziesiąt sześć | eighty-six |

92 | dziewięćdziesiąt dwa | ninety-two |
