oino, dwo, trei, kwetker, penkwe, sweks, sept, oktou, newn, dekm Russian: 1  один (adeen) 2  два (dva) 3  три (tri) 4  четыре (chyetirye) 5  пять (pyat) 6  шесть (shest) 7  семь (syem) 8  восемь (vosyem) 9  девять (dyeviat) 10  десять (dyesiat) It looks like Russian one, eight, and nine deviate from the pattern. I wonder how that happened. Maybe eight, vosyem is "one more than seven" and nine is "one less than 10".

A few more numbers for one's consideration...
So to jump from arbuda (above) and go greatly above (maha) we have mahārbuda or (10 x 100,000,000) one billion. Some use the word badva ( meaning large number) and is defined as 100 koṭis. If we keep using the power of 10 for each sequential number set we arrive at parārdha or 100 quadtrillion ( or 10 to 17th power ; 10^17). Yet there is a number greater then this. It is 10 to the 53rd power (10^53). The word that is used is most interesting. It can be the following: tallakṣanām or tallakṣaṇām or talakṣaṇām or tālakṣaṇām. This is the number I have been pondering as some of its components are most interesting:
praṇām words gaṇa  a flock , troop , multitude , number , tribe , series , class
