Russian cardinal numbers
 <  89 90 91  > 
    Cardinal : девяносто(devjanosto)
    Ordinal : девяно́стый(devjanóstyj)

EtymologyEdit

From Old East Slavic девѧносъто(devęnosŭto), likely inherited from Proto-Indo-European *h₁néwn̥(d)ḱomt(literally ninth ten), from *h₁néwn̥ (whence де́вять(dévjatʹ)) and *déḱm̥t (whence де́сять(désjatʹ)). The ending was likely influenced by съто(sŭto, hundred). Compare Latin nōnāgintā and Ancient Greek ἐνενήκοντα(enenḗkonta). This inherited form is unattested in other Slavic branches, which had re-formed the same compound from scratch as *devętь desętъ(literally nine tens).
