Hindi Numbers, 1-20

Here are numbers 1 to 20:

1. एक १‍ ek
2. दो do
3. तीन tīn
4. चार cār
5. पांच pā̃c
6. छह chah
7. सात sāt
8. आठ āṭh
9. नौ nau
10. दस १० das
11. ग्यारह १‍१ gyārah
12. बारह १‍२ bārah
13. तेरह १‍३ terah
14. चौढह १‍४ caudah
15. पंढ्रह १‍५ pandrah
16. सोलह १६‍ solah
17. सत्रह १७‍ sattrah
18. अठारह १‍८ aṭhārah
19. उन्नीस १९‍ unnīs
20. बीस २० bīs

Um, just memorize them. There is not a very reasonable pattern, other than the one for 19, which is essentially a prefix for -1 and the number 20, a pattern used on 19, 29, 39, etc.:

उन un- +बीस bīs =>उन्नीस unnīs
