[Public] ? ?
two numeral systems: casual, and formal. this article 1 is about the irregular and junk casual system.

This is how numbers are pronounced and informally written (formal numbers are written differently, more in numbers article 2). tbh it's more complex than usual for a number system, i think it's best to look at how the example letters below are constructed and form patterns from that.

so it's supposed to be in base-4 (because four-hand) but with pivots at 8, 12, 16 so it behaves a bit like hexadecimal. also, 5 is irregular (like 11 in english). additionally there are special words and symbols for two or four zeroes, and zero is omitted when not necessary. before the explanation starts sucking let's get right to the chart

by 65536, there is a different compact way to say scientific notation; otherwise one would just repeat bosuku a bunch of times. more on that in numbers article 2.

if the chart skipped too much, or didn't capture certain subtleties of the notation, here is an alternate, computer-generated list of all natural numbers up to 420.
