I'm not sure how to say it in troll but in Orangutan it's "Ook"... I confirmed this with Dr Worblehat himself.

i think it's:
"one, two, three, many, many-one, many-two, many-three, many many, many-many-one, many-many-two, many-many-three, many many many, many-many-many-one, many-many-many-two, many-many-many-three, LOTS."
