Counting in Atrian

Language overview

Forty-two in Atrian The Atrian language (Sondiv) is a fictional language developed by David J. Peterson (also known for other TV series languages such as Dothraki or Castithan) for the American TV series Star-crossed which premiered on The CW in February 2014. It is spoken by the Atrians, a humanoid alien species from planet Atria who took refuge on Earth. Its writing system, called Kwandon, is an abjad, in which each symbol stands for a consonant, the vowel not being written, except when it appears in first position.

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

Atrian numerals

The Atrian number system is decimal. The symbols for numbers are glyphs from the Sondiv alphabet, prefixed with a special number sign to indicate that what is written is a number and not a word, the only exceptions being zero and one, which have their own glyphs. Numbers above nine are simple composites, which means they are written in a positional system (e.g.: 1 + 0 = 10), but the following prime numbers up to nineteen (11, 13, 17 and 19) have their own glyph. In other words, the glyphs for the numbers 2 to 9 and the four following prime numbers are the first twelve glyphs of the Sondiv alphabet.

Atrian 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: vek [1], idis [2], urpis [3], ndu [4], eps [5], uduyu [6], mon [7], tu [8], and val [9].
  • The only documented ten is so [10].
  • We do not know much about the Atrian numbers at the moment, but we will share any piece of information we could have as soon as we get it.
