Hi Georgia,

thank you for your question. Languages are quite dynamics and continue to develop all the time. As a result, there are these interim periods when one word is accepted as the official form, but in the practice another form gradually prevails. Regarding numbers, we are in such an interim period. The literary form of all count numbers is one, but in the spoken language another form prevails.

Here we have the same case: единадесет is the official dictionary form, but единайсет or even pronounced единайсе is the more popular way to say 11. Единайсет is also included in the dictionary, but with the note that it is the colloquial way to pronounce it. Even if you see единадесет, you pronounce it as единайсе. For this reason, we mixed the two forms in the lesson, so you get the feeling about them both. However, in the real life language, you will more often hear единайсе than единадесет.

Best regards,

Tina

"Часът е единадесет и петдесет и девет." is a sample sentence in the notes. Why is eleven written единадесет and not единайсет?
