Numerals

The tens (multiple of ten) are named in relation to the number of zeros they have, with the suffix -ti (from English -ty).

A ten has 1 (un) zero: so we say unti.
Forty is 4 (kwar) tens: so we say kwarunti.
A hundred has 2 (bi) zeros: so we say biti

Above one billion, there are powers of 10, with the suffix -we. A “gogol” is equivalent to 100 (biti) powers of 10: so we say bitiwe.

The units are separated from the multiples by a dash: 22 = biuntibi

Despite the endings in –i, –e, all numeral adjectives are actually radicals, so the tonic emphases falls on the last syllable (un’ti, terti’bi, kwarti’we…)

Duodecimal system

The duodecimal system includes two new digits after 9: A (dos) and B (lef).

A and B are letters often used when noting the duodecimal system, but we propose new signs to note the numbers of this system ➜ See here.
In base 12, the suffixes -ti and -we are replaced by -te and -wi.

Here is a website on which numbers can be converted into different numbering systems: Click here

topDerivatives

topOrdinals

The ordinal number is formed by adding the adjectival ending a to the cardinal number

Examples

un (one) ➜ una (first, prime)
bi (two) ➜ bia (second)
ter (three) ➜ tera (third)
unti (ten) ➜ untia (tenth)
unti-bi (twelve) ➜ unti-bia (twelfth)

topSets

The set is formed by adding the nominal ending e(y)- to the cardinal, but in practice this form is only useful in the plural, especially for round numbers.

Examples

unti (ten) ➜ untiey (tens)
biunti (twenty) ➜ biuntiey (twenties)
biti (hundred) ➜ bitiey (hundreds)
terti (thousand) ➜ tertiey (thousands)
pecti (one hundred thousand) ➜ pectiey (hundreds of thousands)

topCollectives

Groups of people are formed by adding the collective suffix ar to the cardinal.

Examples

un (one) ➜ unare (solo)
bi (two) ➜ biare (duo, couple, pair)
ter (three) ➜ terare (trio, triad, trine, trinity)
kwar (four) ➜ kwarare (quartet)
unti (ten) ➜ untiare (decet)

topArities

The arity is formed by adding the quantitative suffix om to the cardinal.

Examples

un (one) ➜ unoma (unary)
bi (two) ➜ bioma (binary)
ter (three) ➜ teroma (ternary, trinary)
unti (ten) ➜ untioma (decimal)
unti-bi (twelve) ➜ unti-bioma (duodecimal, base twelve, dozenal)

topMultiples

The multiple is formed by adding the multiplicative suffix up to the cardinal.

Examples

bi (two) ➜ biupa (double)
ter (three) ➜ terupa (triple)
kwar (four) ➜ kwarupe (fourfold, quadruple)
unti (ten) ➜ untiupe (tenfold)
biti (hundred) ➜ bitiupe (hundredfold)

topFractions

The fraction is formed by adding the unit suffix un to the cardinal.

Examples

bi (two) ➜ biune (one half, 1/2)
ter (three) ➜ terune (one third, 1/3)
kwar (four) ➜ kwarune (one quarter, 1/4)
nof (nine) ➜ nofune (one ninth, 1/9)
unti (ten) ➜ untiune (one tenth, 1/10)

topMathematical operations

topEnumeration

It is also possible to spell numbers by listing the digits after the particle numer.

Example :

1917 can be said terti-nofbiti-unti-sem or numer un-nof-un-sem.

topOrthography

When noted in numerals, numbers greater than 3 or 4 digits must be written in three-digit increments separated by an apostrophe. Decimals are written after a comma and must be separated by three digit increments with a non-breaking space.

Examples

  • 230
  • 1230 ou 1’230
  • 30’469
  • 1’230’469
  • π = 3,141 592 653 59

When written in letters, numbers are written with a hyphen between each word:

Example

1’230’469 = sesti-bipecti-terkwarti-kwarbiti-sesunti-nof
