Counting in Atlantean

Language overview

Forty-two in Atlantean The Atlantean language is a constructed language created by the linguist Marc Okrand for the Disney’s film Atlantis: The Lost Empire, an animation movie from 2001. Mainly adapted from Proto-Indo-European, it is also influenced by ancient Chinese, Biblical Hebrew, Latin and Greek languages. Its alphabet, created by John Emerson and Marc Okrand, is made of 29 letters and 10 digits. Its writing system is a boustrophedon: the sense of reading alternatively changes at each line of text, from left to right, then from right to left.

Due to lack of data, we can only count accurately up to 10 in Atlantean. Please contact me if you can help me counting up from that limit.

Atlantean numbering rules

Now that you’ve had a gist of the most useful numbers, let’s move to the writing rules for the tens, the compound numbers, and why not the hundreds, the thousands and beyond (if possible).

  • Digits from one to nine are specific words, namely din [1], dut [2], sey [3], kut [4], sha [5], luk [6], tos [7], ya [8], and nit [9].
  • The only documented tens are ehep [10] and sey dehep [30], from which we can deduce dut dehep [20], kut dehep [40], sha dehep [50], luk dehep [60], tos dehep [70], ya dehep [80], and nit dehep [90].
