kay(f)bop(t) number system

November 28, 2015
  1. ga(f)
  2. dan(f)
  3. yup(f)a(f)
  4. kay(f)dan(f)
  5. sna(f)ga(f)
  6. zhna(f)
  7. kay(f)
  8. zi(f)ga(f)
  9. vlim(p)ga(f)

construct larger numbers by stringing digits together:

721 = kay(f)dan(f)ga(f)

62 = zhna(f)dan(f)

for decimals, . = point(f)

and 73 = zov(p)

when a number is used as a standalone word (rather than as a suffix), add the suffix

snil(f)dwin(f)san(t)ap(t)vlir(t)sang(b)es(p)u(t)vom(b)ngo(p)da(t)grog(f)kay(f)kay(f)dan(f)

if it’s odd and

tuw(t)glo(t)yai(b)bai(b)san(t)ap(t)vlir(t)sang(b)es(p)u(t)vom(b)da(t)vlim(p)kay(f)sna(f)ga(f)

if it’s even.

unfortunately, there is no word for 0.

    So I take it 73 is an exception? What about numbers like ten, one hundred, etc?

    • 73 is indeed an exception to the rule. To say 10, you would say “one zero”, except that there is no root for zero so you can’t directly say 10.

        Wow 😀

      • Why not say ‘one nought’? That pretty much means the same thing.

        Quote from the lexicon:
        ‘fif(f)dof(f)mul(t)peb(b) – nought’

      • That would probably be rather like saying “one-nothing” in English. You could try to use fif(f)dof(f)mul(t)peb(b) to express the digit 0, but people would look at you funny.
