Whole Numbers Edit
Kapaupa will be a base-21 numbering system. That means there are 21 unique words from 0 to 20.
Now for the other numbers. To represent those, convert the number to base-21 and follow these digit-merging rules:
- If the next digit is starting with a consonant, just connect them with hyphens.
- There should be only 1 hyphen at each word. If there in an even number of digits, put the hyphen between the most central digits. (Ex. Kwiyopioio-lusiuongono, which means these four digits combined: 6-15-20-9. In decimal, this means 1314630) If it's odd numbered, put it in the more "last" syllables that is the closest to the center, (Ex Terolayio-Seilo, which means these three digits combined: 4-7-13. In decimal, this means 40143)\
- If the next digit starts with a vowel, remove the "o" at the end and connect it, no hyphens needed. (Ex. Wunebiuo, which means these 2 digits combined: 1-16. In decimal, this means 37)
This might be supposed to be called Twemonomals due to the.. base-21 thing. But whatever lets go to how decimals are named.
- There's a separator for whole number digits and decimal digits which is "-hior-", the only exception at the "one-hyphen rule"
- Everything else in whole numbers will apply, except that since decimals have no endings, instead of they becoming bigger the more digits you add, they become more precise.
- 1.5 = Wuno-hior-kyowo
- 0.333 = Nouo-hior-pipiewagio
- 3.1415926535 = Rhowo-hior-ebiuo-khronofwaro-kwonokwiyebiuotowo
Since 0.1 and 0.10 is the same, both of them can be both Nouo-hior-wuno and Nouo-hior-khrono
Fractions and Writing System Edit
They have also a separator "hypior", now without hyphens. For example, one half or one over two will be wuno hypior towo. Since Kapaupa still haven't had a numbering system, the numbers can be also written in Latin numbers. It might be strange at first why they still haven't made one but the reason is they "count" by paring groups that does not require real counting. That is also the reason why the number version of 10 is a shortened version of the word meaning "hands", since our 2 hands have 10 fingers.
Negatives and Operations Edit
To negate a number, add a prefix "opore" if it starts with a consonant and "opor" for vice versa. Here are the words for each operation:
|is equal to||ewki te||Number to Word|
|is greater than||goert da||Number to Word|
|is less than||yoch da||Number to Word|
|is greater or equal to||goert er ekwi te||Number to Word|
|is less or equal to||yoch er ekwi te||Number to Word|
|plus (+)||comie||Number to Word|
|minus (-)||nomie||Number to Word|
|times (*)||remi||Number to Word|
|divided by (/)||noremi||Number to Word|
|squared (^2)||reiri towo||Number to Word|
|cubed (^3)||reiri rhowo||Number to Word|
|to the power of (^)||reiri||Number to Word|
|the factorial of... (!)||coremiri||Number to Word|
|the square root of...||noreiri towo||Word to Number|
|the cube root of...||noreiri rhowo||Word to Number|
|the _ root of...||noreiri _||Word to Number|
The column "Order" might not be easily understood so i'll explain them. When it says "Number to Word", it means that the number that where we are doing the operation or the first number for comparative operators is the first word before the operation word and vice versa for "Word to Number".
