Numerical Bases
Cardinal Number Bases | Ordinal Bases | Fractional Bases | Examples of Two-Digit Numbers | ||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
0 | n* | 10 | gint* | ||||
1 | un* | unt* first | 11 | gintiun* | |||
2 | dw* | dwt* second | dwj* half | 12 | gintidw* | 20 | dwikmt* |
3 | trej* | trejt* third | tertj* one-third | 13 | gintitrej* | 30 | trejikmt* |
4 | kwetor* | kwetort* fourth | kwart* one-fourth, one quarter | 14 | gintikwetor* | 40 | kwetorikmt* |
5 | penkw* | penkwt* fifth | kwint* one-fifth | 15 | gintipenkw* | 50 | penkwikmt* |
6 | sweks* | swekst*sixth | sekst* one-sixth | 16 | gintiseks* | 60 | seksikmt* |
7 | sepm* | sepmt* seventh | 17 | gintisepm* | 70 | sepmikmt* | |
8 | okt* | oktt* eighth | 18 | gintiokt* | 80 | oktikmt* | |
9 | newn* | newnt* ninth | 19 | gintinewn* | 90 | newnikmt* |
kmt* is a special combinator that allows constructions of the form (tens count) + kmt* + (units count). For example, 23 is dwikmtitrej*, 45 is kwetorikmtipenkw*, etc.
Bases for hundreds are formed with the suffix -und*: unund* (100), dwund* (200), etc. As with kmt*, -und* allows constructions of the form (hundreds count) + -und* + (tens/units count).
Bases for powers of 1000 are formed with the suffix -el*: unel* (1,000), dwel* (1,000,000), etc.
The noun case (-os, -om, etc.) is the collective sense: a group of the number of members. The distributive case applies. The verb and adjective cases represent counts.
Indefinite Numbers
Several bases denote enumerations that fall within a particular range or otherwise exhibit noncardinal properties.
