Menu 1. 1-10 - All You Need to Know 2. Mo - Counting by 10 3. Spacing 4. Combining it All Numbers 1-100 are in the dictionary. But what about numbers above that?

Ancient Kaelic has a very simple number system: just figure out your digits and smash all the syllables together!

A numeral in Ancient Kaelic has the following structure:

thousands hundreds tens-ones

For example, 1466 is momomo somomo daemodae

[edit] [top]1-10 - All You Need to Know


All numbers are comprised of some combination of numbers 1-10.

  1. il
  2. nae
  3. ta
  4. so
  5. kae
  6. dae
  7. pen
  8. lo
  9. nan
  10. mo


[edit] [top]Mo - Counting by 10


For each 10s place, add a "mo."

  • 10 = mo
  • 100 = momo
  • 1000 = momomo


You can theoretically increase by orders of 10 infinitely by simply prefixing additional "mo"s.

To indicate plural multiples of 10 (20, 30, 40, etc.), place the single 1-9 number in front of "mo"

  • 20 = naemo
  • 80 = lomo
  • 400 = somomo


Note that 30 and 40 are irregular (30 = "tamot" and 40 = "somot").

[edit] [top]Spacing


Tens and ones are smashed together, but each ten space at 100 and above will be its own word.

[edit] [top]Combining it All


Whatever number you want to write, break it down at each ten space and you'll be able to build it back up.

Example: 2020 is a two in the thousands place and a two in the tens place. Easy!

naemomomo naemo

Happy counting!
