| Cardinal: twēġen|
- The masculine form twēġen was almost never used in complex numerals. Hence "twenty-two people" is twā and twēntiġ manna, not *twēġen and twēntiġ, and "the twenty-second person" is se twā and twēntigoþa mann, even though mann ("person") is a masculine noun.
- In poetry, neuter nouns were usually used with tū. However, in prose, they often occurred with twā instead, especially in Late West Saxon prose, where tū was almost completely absent.
