My language is oligosynthetic, and doesn't consider there to be much separation between numbers and words. Every number up to a certain amount is built out of the names of the digits, strung together in sequence. The language also uses base 6, so every number above 5 technically has two digits. I.E. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, etc...

0-Zu

1-O

2-Fi

3-Ga

4-She

5-Di

6-Mi, OZu (There is a specific root word for six, which is more likely to be used in speech, and is also used in informal contexts, counting, on clocks, and in short lists. The full two digit number is used in formal situations, math, long lists (100+ items) and on digital clocks.)

7-OO

And so on, until 36.

36-MiMi, OZuZU

37-OZuO

38-OZuFi

Et cetera. 36 is the last number with an alternate form.

Numbers up to four digits long are acceptable, but after that, numbers would just get confusing, so the naming system starts to follow a trend more similar to that of natural languages, multiplying a small number by a named large one.

The basic number system from one to 10 in Sunbyaku:

**miro: 1**

hyoro: 2

karo: 3

rabi: 4

bvū: 5

myō: 6

kele: 7

iyer: 8

gin: 9

sō:10

To go higher: multiples of ten go number-10:

**hyozō: 20**

kazō:30

rabisō:40

...And so on.

In between that, you suffix the number instead, with a hyphen traditionally used:

**sō-mi: 11**

kazō-gin: 39

The traditional number system goes far, FAR higher than that, however. Here are the rest of the numbers with their own dedicated words:

**būn: 100**

gul: 1,000

vyūr: 10,000

beul: 100,000

mū: 1,000,000

This is the idea that I will use in a conlang.

This is a language that has both base 10 and base 12, or at least supports both bases.

0. nen (translated as 'no' or 'none')

1. unni

2. duho

3. triso

4. tetra

5. penta

6. heksa

7. seysi

8. otxu

9. yonna

10. deka

11. envle

10. tes

100. sens

12. dos

144. kwas

The numbers have two pronunciations:

11 units: unni-tes-unni or envle

13 units: unni-tes-triso or unni-dos-unni

31 units: triso-tes-unni (3*10 + 1) or duho-dos-seysa (2*12 + 7)

----

It seems base 12 is better than base 10.

I tried to create a new calendar and a new clock using base 10, but I failed, because 12 has better divisors (3 and 4 are more important than 5).

7.**maue** [mawé]

8.**uakua** [wakwá]

Placing numbers side by side multiplies them. For example ...

20.**euos ava** [ewósavá]

30.**egios ava** [eŋjósavá]

...

To add numbers, a special additive form is used. Essentially, it is formed by prefixing*x-* [ʃ] to the beginning of the number, replacing any initial consonant.

+1.**xahu** [ʃahú]

+2.**xeuo** [ʃewó]

+3.**xegio** [ʃeŋjó]

+4.**xuttia** [ʃutsʼːá]

+5.**xane** [ʃané]

+6.**xeje** [ʃeʒé]

+7.**xaue** [ʃawé]

+8.**xuakua** [ʃwakwá]

+9.**xoikue** [ʃojkwé]

So, for example,

11.**ava xahu** [aváʃahú]

12.**ava xeuo** [aváʃewó]

13.**ava xegio** [aváʃeŋjó]

14.**ava xuttia** [aváʃutsʼːá]

25.**euos ava xane** [ewósaváʃané]

________

Rrób Tè Jĕhnò has a base-6 numeral system with dedicated mono-morphemic terms for the multiples of six up to 36. Note that the pronunciation of final stops can vary significantly depending on the sounds that follow them.

1.**p’íg** [p’ík]

2.**kú** [kʰúː]

3.**t’úgh** [t’úq]

4.**pé** [pʰéː]

5.**fàì** [fɛ̀ː]

6.**dlyă** [ɬʲá]

7.**dlyĕbíg** [ɬʲəbík]

8.**dlyĕgú** [ɬʲəgúː]

9.**dlyĕdúgh** [ɬʲədúq]

10.**dlyĕbé** [ɬʲəbéː]

11.**dlyĕwàì** [ɬʲəwɛ̀ː]

12.**dlád** [ɬát]

18.**khó** [qʰóː]

24.**crà** [ʈʂʰàː]

30.**c’é** [ts’éː]

36.**srégh** [ʂéq]

Numbers above 36 use the conjunction**ne**, roughly "and", as in **srégh ne p’íg**, "37." Once you hit 72, numerals can be compounded before **srégh** in much the same way that English forms words like "two-hundred", though the initial consonant of the multiplicative numeral is lenited and its vowel reduces to a schwa. So "73" would be **gĕsrégh ne p’íg**. About the highest number regularly derived is **rĕhsrégh**, 1,296 (36x36), as the speakers of the language live in a relatively small-scale society and hardly ever have a practical reason to count multiple thousands of anything.

For Kusan (formerly Proto-Rjande-Kusan), I've only come up with the numbers of one to five:

One: /darsʲ/*, nom: ['darsʲa] <*darša*>

Two: /idʲ/*, nom: ['idʲa] <*iža*>

Three: /gesə/*, nom: ['gesa] <*gesa*>

Four: /mave/*, nom: ['mavi] <*mavi*>

Five: /dʲasti/*, nom: ['dʲasti] <*žasti*>

I'm not entirely sure yet where to go beyond that. The language is spoken by an iron age culture with fairly extensive trade networks, so higher numbers will likely come into play fairly often, but whether these should be transparently derived, completely unrelated or somewhere in between, e.g. derived in the past but obscured through sound change or possibly deriving from a foreign language, isn't something I've come to a decision on.

The same is true for base to use. I usually use base-10 but I've been thinking of using base-12. Base-8 would roughly fit in with the phases of the planets two moons (eight and a third for one and thirty-two and a half for the other (kind of accidental, all I did was choose a mass and a distance and those are the numbers that came out ) but I might use that for another language spoken nearby instead.

*the base form affects how the word declines. For example, vowel-initial suffixes can be attached directly to consonant-final stems, but need to undergo modification when attached to vowel-final stems and vice-versa for consonant-initial suffixes. Additionally, only* can occur in word-final open syllables, causing /e o ə/ to shift to ** and for consonantal stems to take an epenthetic /ə/ (which then appears as [a] word-finally, reverting back to [ə] when followed by a consonant-initial suffix).*

Numbers also have a morphologically plural form which roughly means "groups of X", e.g. ['idʲa] > ['idʲin] "twos, groups of two", ['gesa] > [ge'səjən] "threes, groups of three", ['mavi] > [ma'vejən], ['dʲasti] > [dʲas'tijən], etc.

One: /darsʲ/*, nom: ['darsʲa] <

Two: /idʲ/*, nom: ['idʲa] <

Three: /gesə/*, nom: ['gesa] <

Four: /mave/*, nom: ['mavi] <

Five: /dʲasti/*, nom: ['dʲasti] <

You can tell the same lie a thousand times,

But it never gets any more true,

So close your eyes once more and once more believe

That they all still believe in you.

Just one time.
