It has been invented by Muhammad Abd-el-Rahman Barker for the Empire of the Petal Throne roleplaying games, alongside other languages.

Engsvanyáli 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 rendered by specific words: fér [1], ghám [2], vém [3], mzhám [4], tlúm [5], gavím [6], horóm [7], ghemém [8], and fetlúm [9].
  • Tens are formed from the root of the multiplier digit (without its m suffix), to which the suffix -sél is added, except for ten: tlatúm [10], ghasél [20], vesél [30], mzhasél [40], tlusél [50], gavisél [60], horosél [70], ghemesél [80], and fetlusél [90].
  • Compound numbers are formed starting with the ten, followed by the unit separated with a space (e.g.: ghasél mzhám [24], gavisél fetlúm [69]).
  • Hundreds are formed starting with the multiplier digit with a change of its diacritic, directly followed by the word for hundred without its first letter ((m)rishtám), with no space, except for one hundred: mrishtám [100], ghàmrishtám [200], vèmrishtám [300], mzhàmrishtám [400], tlùmrishtám [500], gavìmrishtám [600], horòmrishtám [700], ghemèmrishtám [800], and fetlùmrishtám [900].
  • The word for thousand is denutlám [1,000].
  • Two other big numbers are known: sultsám [10,000] and tutlám [1 million].
