Offical C.O.P. Number System
Join to comment
Everyone listen up.

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.

zero= z
One= BA
Two= BAI
Three= BE
CA is not next since c doesn't excist in Tarsin.
four= DA
five= DAI
six= DE
seven=FA
eight= FAI
nine= FE
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!

This took hours. But Mace's system of phonetics is a little different than mine. His is literal, mine is symbolic. Observe:


z- zero
B- one
Bai- two
B- three
D- four
Dai- five
D- six
F- seven
Fai- eight
F- nine

Add two numbers together to get a bigger number. For example:
B-b is 11.
F-dai is 95.

Add "z" to the end of a number to add a zero to it. For example:
B-z is 10.

Add a "" to a number to make it negative.For example:
-b is -1.
-b-z is -10.

B-- first
Bai-- second
B-- third
D-- fourth
Dai-- fifth
D-- sixth
F-- seventh
Fai-- eighth
F-- ninth

Yeah he'll probably knit pick you until you give up.

Another 4 hours later of debating. (That's how long it took.)

So if your computer can type those wierd little arrow things above letters use Awe's, but if it can't you can use mine. With some credit of course.

Hey, earlier we had G for one of the consonants. It could have been worse.

Ideas:
Soldier: Progruo (related to a shortened version of two latin words combined, meaning Attack Warrior)

I'm good at creating words.

In fact, I've created two languages, but only one of 'em has grammar rules. Yet.

cool. I gotta go pretty soon, but maybe we and Awe can work on something

Can do Mr. Morgan. I'm online right now.

However, I'd stay away from using real life words, and it'd be better if you got a good grasp on the phonetics and syntax of the language I've established so far.

Indeed. See, the system is easy.

But due to an incident with Phaze, these are Tarsin numbers, not English numbers. When speaking English, we don't need to use them, as Phaze thought we did.

Oh, gosh. Let's see if they can figure out if it was A, AI, or E that was the worst.

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.

I think Mace is getting the Middle East vibe because of Azer-Irudzishi (old machine) and Azerbaijan.

But culturally, I've drawn a lot from Eastern culture in general. It's what we Westerners find most exotic, and since the COP is from space... Yea.

It's a whole heck-of-a lot more exciting than "howdy." Oh, and to prove I'm still active:http://www.flickr.com/photos/scrumdadidaliumptiousness/5058734174/

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.
