Counting in Bocce

Language overview

Bocce is a fictional language that belongs to the Star Wars universe. Interplanetary trade language comprising parts of multiple others, and therefore pidgin by definition, it was created by the Baobab Merchant Fleet to allow communication between starcraft pilots, crews, and support personnel of various species.

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

Bocce 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, mostly derived from the Standard Basic pronunciation: wun [1], zwoo [2], treb [3], goor [4], fyiz [5], zix [6], zeve [7], kata [8], and navax [9].
  • The only documented tens are: atanox [10], gatanox [20], and kimonex [50].
  • One hundred is pajono, one thousand, apajono, and ten thousand opajono.
