 Elasin Numbers

You Can Count In Elasin!

Fruthuatu ledotavu elasinsa!*

 

The Elasin numerical system is base 14, which is quite a foreign concept when compared with our own base 10 system. For example, the base 10 number system uses the following single digit integers:

0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9

 

To this set, Elasin would add:

!-@-#-$

 

NOTE:These are NOT the actual numbers in Elasin! The actual written symbols will be discussed later. For now we will use !, @, #, $ to explain the system.

Therefore, the total digits would look something like this:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ! @ # $

 

Our 14 then would appear as:

10

 

With 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 27 looking like:

10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 1! 1@ 1# 1$

 

And then 28 would be...?

Right, 20 (in Elasin)

 

Below, we will use the !, @, #, and $ to simulate Elasin. The Elasin zero is hafni, which is also the word for "empty." Here are the names of the numbers:

Base 10 Elasin (Base 14) Name
1 1 dofa
2 2 tari
3 3 piko
4 4 nano
5 5 sela
6 6 fisan
7 7 maisash
8 8 volia
9 9 tesom
10 ! polath
11 @ nikos
12 # soena
13 $ voto
14 10 mata

The next set gives the numbers from "10" to "$0"...

Base 10 Elasin (Base 14) Name
14 10 mata
28 20 taima
42 30 pima
56 40 nama
70 50 sema
84 60 fima
98 70 sasha
112 80 vosa
126 90 sota
140 !0 posa
154 @0 kosa
168 #0 soesa
182 $0 vosa

And, last of all, the Elasin "100's": The next set gives the numbers from "100" to "$00"...

Base 10 Elasin (Base 14) Name
196 100 matai
392 200 tatai
588 300 pitai
784 400 natai
980 500 setai
1,176 600 fitai
1,372 700 masai
1,568 800 votai
1,764 900 tetai
1,960 !00 potai
2,156 @00 nitai
2,352 #00 soetai
2,548 $00 vitai

1000 in Elasin is telas and would be (in base 10) 2,744.

Now, let's see how this works:

When combining or reading numbers, the conjunction li is used:

So, base 10 "15" in Elasin is...11 - mata li dofa.

Base 10 "200" in Elasin is...104 - matai nano.

Base 10 "1964" in Elasin is...!04 - potai nano.

Note that when combining Elasin "100's," li is not used.

 

A nice web site for converting between Base 10 and Base 14 is Convert Any Radix Base Number

 

 

*Literally: "It is possible, your counting using Elasin!"
