Awe anf I have officaly decided on the C.O.P. number system. Here is how it goes: Write out the alphabet, croos out the vowels, then cross out c, j, q, x, and y since they don't excist in Tarsin. Then, well, look below.
CA is not next since c doesn't excist in Tarsin.
ten= BA-z (1 and 0 put together)
eleven= BA-BA (1 and 1 put together)
twelve= BA-BAI (1 and 2 put together)
thirteen= BA-BE (1 and 3 put together)
fourteen= BA-DA (1 and 4 put together)
fifteen= BA-DAI (1 and 5 put together)
sixteen= BA-DE (1 and 6 put together)
seventeen= BA-FA (1 and 7 put together)
eighteen= BA-FAI (1 and 8 put together)
nineteen= BA-FE (1 and 9 put together)
twenty= BAI-z (2 and 0 put together)
This goes on, and on.
For negative numbers, you put u-BA. u-BA= negative one.
It's a pretty simple number system isn't it? Once you get the hang of it. This was mostly my idea; Awe's was the how to make double digit numbers. Please do not steal this idea and say it's your own or else Awe will probably sew you somehow.
And one more thing. Tarsin is pretty musch phonetical! Permalink

Some of the number system sounds chineseish.
on an unrelated topic it chineseish a word. But i think i get the nomber system i just need to know the "syntax" and the other thing Awe said.
Well hay, some of the stuff Awe came up with sounded Middle-eastern. Permalink

I thought you said not to take words from existing cultures? That was why you didn't want words like necro. *points finger accusingly*
Read again: I took influences (sound, word structure, etc) from real world things, I didn't take actual words. Necro- is so obviously an Earth word that we'd never get away with using it as a completely alien language.
Azer and Azerbaijan were complete coincidence. Permalink
