Counting in Kinuk’aaz

Enter a number and get it written in full in Kinuk’aaz.

Language overview

Forty-two in Kinuk’aaz Designed by David J. Peterson, Kinuk’aaz is the language of the Omec people in the universe of the Defiance TV show. Newly arrived in the third season of the series, they are known to raid the Votans worlds every 76 years. They have their own alphabet, the Zaduusel, and not a syllabary like the different Votan races (namely, the Castithan, Irathient and Indogene).

Due to lack of data, this program can only count accurately up to 1,999 in Kinuk’aaz. Please contact me if you can help me counting up from that limit.

Kinuk’aaz numerals

The Omec people use a decimal base and not the vigesimal base shared by the Votans. Their numbers are grouped in three-number chunks separated with a comma, the first one of each group being written in its initial form, while the others are written in their plain form. As written in isolation, the nine digits are thus written in their plain form.

Kinuk’aaz numbering rules

  • Digits from one to nine are rendered by specific words, namely nit [1], tsin [2], höp [3], ir [4], voüt [5], pek [6], ros [7], diim [8], and zats [9].
  • Tens are formed by prefixing the word for ten (muz) with the root of the multiplier digit, except for ten itself: muz [10], tsimmuz [20], hömmuz [30], irmuz [40], vimmuz [50], pemmuz [60], rosmuz [70], dimmuz [80], and zammuz [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed by putting the ten, then the unit digit separated with a space (e.g.: tsimmuz nit [21], höp tsin [32]).
  • Hundreds are formed by prefixing the word for hundred (kval) with the root of the multiplier digit, except for one hundred itself, with some alterations: kval [100], tsinkval [200], hökkval [300], irval [400], vikkval [500], pekkval [600], rosval [700], diimbal [800], and zatsval [900].
  • One thousand is t’ür.
  • The biggest number we can spell at the moment in Kinuk’aaz is t’ür zatsval zammuz zats [1,999].
