French

the French language has separate words for every number up to dozen four. annoyingly, this means that the only number without a basic French name between twelve and thirsy is dozen five. I think the best solution to this is to just not use any of the words after twelve.

  • 0: zéro

  • 1: un

  • 2: deux

  • 3: trois

  • 4: quatre

  • 5: cinq

  • 10: six

  • 11: sept

  • 12: huit

  • 13: neuf

  • 14: dix

  • 15: onze

  • 20: douze

most multiples of ten have French names that end with -ante, which, as we've done for other Romance languages, can be replaced with -anse to form names for multiples of six.

  • 21: douze et un

  • 22: douze deux

  • 23: douze trois

  • 24: douze quatre

  • 25: douze cinq

  • 30: trense

  • 40: quaranse

the number eighty (two nif eight), despite being a multiple of ten, doesn't have a name that ends with -ante. instead, it's called quatre vingts, which means "four twenties". because of this, I don't think it would be fitting for French to use something like "cinquanse" for fifsy. even though it's five sixes, it's also three tens, and isn't that more important?

  • 50: trente

the large powers of six can be loaned directly with no problems.

  • 100: nif

  • 101: nif un

  • 110: nif six

  • 200: duex nif

  • 1000: six nif

  • 1 0000: unexian

  • 1 0000 0000: biexian
