There is a base-10 and base-20 version of this number system, but I'll only write the base-10 here.

0 no word for zero yet!
1 kíh
2 vod
3 řajt
4 lëk
5 das
6 xojf
7 len
8 n/üb
9 pejp
10 zur
100 höm

There is in fact a pattern the sounds of these words follow, as governed by my phonology, in order to maximise their distinctness from one another.

Now, putting them together gets interesting. I thought, if I were shouting into the wind a number to someone, it is best that they hear what RANGE the number falls into, as opposed to the value it holds within that range. For example, I shout to Jim "Four hundred!". Supposing the wind snatches the second part of my speech, all Jim will hear is "Four!". Does this mean four hundred? Or four thousand?
Thus, I decided to arrange my numbers with 'range' first, then 'values' as follows:

423
höm lëk zur vod řajt
'hundred four ten two three'
Four hundred and twenty three.

Also, I do realise the wind might snatch the first part of a phrase and not the first... I am open to suggestions of having it like basically all the languages I speak, with the numerical values first followed by the 'range' they occupy.

P.S. If IPA would help, I can edit this.
P.P.S. I may need a word for the 'ones'-place, as you might say, "It's thirty...four!" if the number in question is changing, and as I've currently arranged it that speech pattern "zur řajt...lëk!" might be misconstrued as "It's thirty...forty!"

:con: Deyryck :

Deyryck has three base :

Eighteen (when it comes to measuring something):

0 - µéa
1 - Déa
2 - Béa
3 - Géa
4 - Léa
5 - Zéa
6 - Véa
7 - Méa
8 - Jéa
9 - Héa
A - Céa
B - Néa
C - Féa
D - Séa
E - Réa
F - Kéa
G - Péa
H - Téa

Then the center vowel transforms into : i for tens, o for hundreds, a for thousands. The "a" will remains at end and there will only be one (except for the thousands). Then can then be combined to created greater numbers (i, o, a, ya, wa, aa, yaa, waa, ahaa, ...) :

10.256.820 (base 18): Dyaabwazyavajobi(éa)

http://vocaroo.com/i/s1DkV00kxD7G


(éa become éha if negative, é becomes û when numbers aren't integers.)

Twelve (when it comes to count things):


0 - ama
1 - ala
2 - olo
3 - ôlô
4 - ili
5 - élé
6 - èlè
7 - êlê
8 - ele
9 - ulu
A - ûlû
B - îlî (or ély)

Same principle as before but the "l" is what changes with v, z, y. (v, z, y, vy, zy, yay or yy /tj/, vyay or vyy , zyay or zyy, ...) Some "y" can also be pronounced "h".


10.256.820 (base 12): Avyyozyévyèyezovo

http://vocaroo.com/i/s0nW7lH21VrG

Ten (for pretty much everything else):


0 - zast
1 - aast
2 - past
3 - kast
4 - tast
5 - éast
6 - fast
7 - gast
8 - cast
9 - iast

Supposedly ten would then be : "aasti", one hundred would be : "aasto", and you'd have numbers such as :

235 : pastoékastiééast

Most of the time, though, this will be contracted to :

235 : pokyé

Which might follow "sal'" to avoid misunderstanding.

Using this, you'd have :

10.256.820 (base 10): (sal')yahapwaéyafacopi

http://vocaroo.com/i/s1PZFc2e8QzB


There also "calculative numbers". And "dimensional numbers", and some other versions, but they'd take me too long to explain for now. ^^

If you'll have numbers from your conlangs. Could please send me on this topic in future?

Thank you for your help!

This is going to be really obnoxious, but I'm just going to post my whole number system, because I don't think it needs its own thread.
1 ta
2 véi
3 sum
4 knghu
5 mhu
6 xé
7 tío
8 pan
9 kon
10 on
11 tadon
12 véidon
13 sumdon
14 knghudon
15 mhudon
16 xén
17 tíon
18 pandon
19 kondon
20 mada
21 ta de mada
22 véi de mada
23 sum de mada (and so on.)

Skadéc uses a partial vigesimal system, somewhat like French, I think. "De" means "on" and all of the teen numbers are shortenings of "*number* on ten".

You get into higher numbers and get:

35 mhudon de mada
36 xén de mada
40 madavéi
49 kondon de madavéi
60 madasum
80 madakngu
100 madamhu
120 madaxé

The multiples of 20 only go up to ten. The highest multiple of 20 you can have, therefore, is 180: madakon.

After "kondon de madakon" you get

200 Jeti
201 ta de jeti
202 véi de jeti
300 madamhu de jeti
355 mhudon de madatío de jeti

355: 15 on 140 on 200. The math works out.

And for 400 you get:

jetivéi.

and so on and so on until 2,000.

2,000: Blan
4,000: Blanvéi
6,000: Blansum
20,000: Ctet.

Some random large numbers:

17,995: mhudon de madakom de jetikon de blanpan

15 on 180 on 1800 on 16,000.

69,438: pandon de mada jetitío de blanknghu de ctetsum

18 on 20 on 1400 on 8000 on 60,000

I really don't know how understandable this would be if it were a real-life language. I know that in German, 89 would be neunundachtzig, but 1253 is eintausend-zweihundert-dreiundfünfzig, not:

dreiundfunfzig-zweihundert-eintausend.

(I've never really practiced the German numbers like I should...so I may have some spelling wrong, ot something wrong in general.)

The first written character is the "formal" version, whereas the second is an informal short-hand version that is now used much more frequently. Below are the full IPA versions of the words. (Oh, and the native Ving use a middle dot instead of a comma and group by 100s.)

Be careful with that shorthand system - like in Chinese, it alone is too easy to falsify. The one very easily becomes a 10 or a 100.

Please you tell me name for number 9 and 10, because is this numbers system 8.
8 (10) - /ɓɛʝ/
9 (A) - /ɓɛʝmɔd/
10 (B) -/ɓɛʝʔaɪ̯/
It's correct?
Could you please tell me what is the name for your new language? Vưng-Ḍác Tǫ?
Thank you!

It was actually this reason for which the long versions were made, akin to banking numbers in Chinese: to make falsification less of an issue.
