Abstract
U ovom radu govorit ću o etimologiji brojeva. Brojevi su jedan od najstarijih elemenata jezika. Većina ima jasnu etimologiju, ali im je podrijetlo nepoznato. Vjerojatno su posuđenice. Znamo da je indoeuropski sustav bio decimalan i isti sustav imamo u grčkom, latinskom i slavenskim jezicima. Znanstvenici su pokušavali otkriti podrijetlo brojeva kroz metafore i metonimije, ali su te teorije često pogrešne. Govorit ću o glavnim brojevima od jedan do deset i o sto i tisuću.

Parallel abstract (English)
In this paper I will discuss etymology of numbers. Numbers are one of the oldest elements of any language. Most of them have clear etymology, but their true origin is unknown. They were probably borrowed. We know that Indo-European system was decimal and we have the same system in Greek, Latin and Slavic languages. Scientists tried to discover the origin of numbers through metaphors and metonymies, but those theories were often false. I will talk about cardinal numbers from one to ten and hundred and thousand.
