Sort of ties into your screenname, doesn't it? Decem- comes from the Latin for ten, but December is the twelfth month.

Because somebody randomly inserted two months before. Good job, Augustus and Caesar (or in this case: valde bonum).

3- zok
4- to
5- kin
6- tan
7- bof
10- nö
11- növa
12- nözai

This number system is octal, that's why the specific number names only go to 10 (which is equal to 8).

Zidhgebzhail - With all numbers in the masculine.

1 - oed - ['oʊd]
2 - saingyt -['saɪŋət]
3 - benvyk - ['bɛnvək]
4 - rrougyk - ['rugək]
5 - jiptyk - ['jɪptək]
6 - maalyk - ['mɑlək]
7 - gwethyk - ['gwɛθək]
8 - ziezyk - ['zizək]
9 - dautyk - ['daʊtək]
10 - sonyk - ['sɒnək]

Eleven would be 'oedsonyk' , twelve 'saingsonyk' and so on.

Twenty would be 'sonsaingyk', thirty 'sonbenvyk' and so on.

One hundred is 'sonsonyk', one thousand is 'syksonyk', ten thousand is 'sonsyksonyk', one hundred thousand is 'syksyksonyk', one million is 'sonsyksyksonyk'. I suspect, however, that the numbers in this paragraph would have alternative, shorter, names as well.

Left: name of the number and pronominal
Right: adjectival. In parentheses, archaic forms.

Numbers are always invariable.

0: sifyr \ nwl
1: wyh \ ui
2: dwí \ zw
3: thur
4: urba \ fyr
5: vísy \ fem
6: aiph \ (seiz)
7: sífen \ xú
8: yssagh \ agh
9: djeven \ djif (nuin)
10: zeit
11: elf
12: dwydh
13: thurden
14: fyrden
15: femden
...
20: zwsigh
21: zwsiwyh
22: zwsidwí
...
40: fyrsigh
...

Bigger numbers are counted in hundreds (hurd), tens of thousands (myriadh) and hundreds of millions (griet).

100: hurd
157: hurd-femsisíven
200: zw-hurd
1000: zeit-hurd
4936: fysidjeven-hurd-thursigaiph
1.0000: myriadh

My number words have changed pretty dang significantly, and I've put some thought into how I'm going to build numbers past 10, so I may as well post an update. Vorynthel counting is still base-10, with units below 10 being base-5, based on a system of counting units on both sides of the left hand (i.e. turning one's hand over and starting again upon reaching 5) and tens on the right hand.

1 - ynw [ˈynʊ]
2 - ente [ˈende]
3 - daptá [ðʌbˈdɑ]
4 - pwar [pʰwɑʀ]
5 - ronte [ˈronde]

6 - ronte äf ynw -five and one
7 - ronte äf ente - five and two
8 - ronte äf daptá - five and three
9 - ronte äf pwar - five and four
10 - vor [ʋoʀ] - ten

11 - ynwvor [ˈynɵˌʋoʀ] - one-ten
12 - entevor [ˈendɛˌʋoʀ] - two-ten
13 - daptávor [ðʌbˈdɑʋoʀ] - three-ten
14 - pwarvor [ˈpʰwɑʀʋoʀ] - four-ten
15 - rontevor [ˈrondɛˌʋoʀ] - five-ten
16 - rontevor äf ynw - five-ten and one

20 - vorreinte [ˈʋorːɛjnˌde] - two tens
21 - vorreinte äf ynw - two tens and one

30, 40, 50 - vorredapta, vorrepwar, vorreronte - three tens, four tens, five tens

60 - vorreronte äf vor - five tens and ten

100 - cïomad [ˈkiɔˌmɑð] - (one) hundred
200 - cïomadimente, cïomadindapta, cïomadimpwar, cïomadinronte [ˈkiɔˌmɑðimende, ˈkiɔˌmɑðinðɑbdɑ, ˈkiɔˌmɑðimbʱwɑʀ, ˈkiɔˌmɑðinronde] - two hundreds, three hundreds, four hundreds, five hundreds
600 - cïomadinronte äf cïomad - five hundreds and one hundred

100 - cïomadimvor - ten hundreds

And that's as far as I've really thought of.

The Łoresan languages have an octal system.

0 - rom (rom also means "no")
1 - hes
2 - lai
3 - mel
4 - arum
5 - ila
6 - ema
7 - hali
8 (10) - fan
9 (11) - hes fan
10 (12) - lai fan

I wrote a big post about this in the accomplishment thread, including how to count to 100008/409610

Neun and Zwå both come German. The rest are either my own or based on French.

Lonmai Luna/Liunan(new version):

hi -1
ta -2
ti -3
bo -4
mi -5
te -6
pa -7
da -8
wo -9
yu -10
he -11
ha -12
tai -13
be -14
wi -15
dai -16
to -17
so -18
sai -19
ma -0

there are also two more restricted systems of Lonmai Luna/Liunan:

octal system(only used to count some kinds of thing and is up to 64,here I only listed to 16):

roka -1
teksa -2
dika -3
tirka -4
bika -5
daika -6
faka -7
daka -8
daka-roka -9
daka-teksa -10
daka-dika -11
daka-tirka -12
daka-bika -13
daka-daika -14
daka-faka -15
teksa-daka -16

duodecimal system(used for names of days, months, years, almost always ordinally):

rokai -1st(day,month,etc)
teklai -2nd
dilai -3rd
tirai -4th
bilai -5th
dayai -6th
falai -7th
dakai -8th
ulai -9th
yulai -10th
kayai -11th
kalmai -12th

Nevotak:

hi -1 ['i]
tu -2 ['tu]
na -3 ['na]
bi -4 ['bi]
rob -5 ['ɺob]
hob -6 ['hob]
mi -7 ['mi]
kak -8 ['kak]
kak-hi -9 [ka'ki]
kak-tu -10 [kak'tu]
kak-na -11 [kak'na]
kak-bi -12 [kak'bi]
kak-rob -13 [kak'ɺob]
kak-hob -14 [kak'hob]
kak-mi -15 [kak'mi]
tu-kak -16 [tu'kak]

there are some irregularties in the transcription, so I added the IPA pronunciation

Sakawi:

Sakawi has two systems, both of them are octal, one is the native system, they can only modify verbs; the other is the system borrowed from Nevotak, which can modify nouns:

Native system:

kuza -1
kuzatu -2
yaiza -3
vois -4
kuza voisinga -5(1+4)
kuzatu voisinga -6(2+4)
yaiza voisinga -7(3+4)
voistu -8
kuza voistunga -9(1+8)
kuzatu voistunga -10(2+8)
yaiza voistunga -11(3+8)
yaiza voisti -12(3*4)
yaiza voisti kuzanga -13(3*4+1)
yaiza voisti kuzatunga -14(3*4+2)
yaiza voisti yaizanga -15(3*4+3)
kuzatu voistuti -16(2*8)

System borroweb from Nevotak:

i -1
tu -2
na -3
bi -4
rop -5
hop -6
mi -7
kak -8
kak-i -9
kak-tu -10
kak-na -11
kak-bi -12
kak-rob -13
kak-hob -14
kak-mi -15
tu-kak -16
I prefer to not be referred to with masculine pronouns and nouns such as “he/him/his”.
