In this form a following noun is always singular and Patrom:m has to agree for gender:
- The Italian cardinal numbers may be used as nouns, pronouns, adjectives and the names of years.
- The number Patrom:m follows the rules of the indefinite article when used as an adjective (un espresso, uno scotch, una birra e un'aranciata).
- Numbers ending in "3" (starting with twenty-) are stressed on the last syllable and written as -tré.
- The number Patrom:m becomes Patrom:m in the plural e.g. Patrom:m
- The plural of Patrom:m is Patrom:m.
- The numbers Patrom:m and Patrom:m (and above) are not adjectives, and take a Patrom:m when followed by a noun e.g. Patrom:m.
- Numbers above a thousand are sometimes broken down into their constituent parts e.g. Patrom:m => Patrom:m (this is especially true of very large round numbers). A period is used instead of a comma to separate thousands from hundreds e.g. 25.000 (twenty-five thousand). Numbers above a hundred thousand are often broken down into groups of three e.g. 860.789 => ottocentosessantamila settecentoottantanove.
- The numbers Patrom:m, Patrom:m, etc. (when capitalized) are used to represent centuries:
- The noun forms of the numbers 1 to 31 are used for the days of a month e.g. il trenta di maggio.
- Years are sometimes written as separate words e.g. duemila e sette for 2007
- The final vowel of Patrom:m, Patrom:m, Patrom:m and Patrom:m is sometimes elided:
There are special words for the first ten normal ordinal numbers, and the rest are formed from the cardinal number by adding -esimo (see table). The final "o" or "e" is dropped from the cardinal number, unless it is an é in which case it just loses the accent e.g. Patrom:m
- Some ordinal numbers have synonyms e.g. Patrom:m and Patrom:m for Patrom:m, Patrom:m for Patrom:m, Patrom:m for Patrom:m, Patrom:m for Patrom:m, Patrom:m for Patrom:m; 110th is Patrom:m

Most paper and online dictionaries only include a small number of Italian numbers – normally all simple numbers up to about 21, all the tens to 100 and then the large round numbers.
There are an infinite number of Italian numbers and it would be silly to attempt to include them all. Our aim is therefore to include all numbers up to 1000 (many added by a bot), and then to include numbers that demonstrate the various rules of formation of larger ones. Our criteria for inclusion also allows any other number to be included if use of it is found in books etc.
