How can we count in Hebrew?
As with nouns and adjectives, the numbers in Hebrew are also declined by gender (masculine or feminine). The numbers may be portrayed in the following groups: 1-2, 3-10, 11-19, and the tens 20-90. The first two numbers are used in more of an adjectival manner in Hebrew. The feminine form אחת was originally אחד with a feminine suffix ת, but the dental [d] assimilated to the dental [t], leaving us with the final form אחת. The biggest (and most surprising) unique characteristic in the numbers 3-10 is the switch between the regular masculine and feminine suffixes.
