Numbers and Counting

Trigedasleng's number system is inherited from English, so the bulk of the changes are mere respellings to comply with the romanization system developed by David Peterson.

Cardinal Numbers
1 won 11 len 30 thodi
2 tu 12 twel 40 fodi
3 thri 13 thotin 50 fidi
4 fou 14 fotin 60 sisti
5 fai 15 fitin 70 sendi
6 sis 16 sistin 80 eidi
7 sen 17 sentin 90 naidi
8 eit 18 eitin 100honet
9 nain 19 naitin 1000thauz
10 ten 20 tweni million, billion miyon, biyon

Numbers are put together the same way they are in English: irregular numbers up to twenty, followed by tweni won, tweni tu, etc. Large numbers also follow English rules: tu honet fidi fai (255)

Most ordinal numbers, with a few exceptions, are simply the cardinal number + -on, except multiples of ten (+ -t), one hundred (no change), and powers of ten (+ -et). As with English, ordinals that have multiple components (24th, 112th) only have an ordinal at the end (tweni fot, honet twelon).
