The Aśan Numbers

 

The grammatical numbers :

Aczu Śavnecze doesn't distinguish singular from plural, considering plural things form undividable groups. There's however a dual and a trial used in the purpose of subdividing those entities into two or three parts.

As for nouns and adjectives, they are formed by shifting the first vowel of the word following those paths :
  •   Dual : aeuı → ∅.
  •   Trial  : ueıa → ∅.

Here, ∅ means that the vowel disappear. Then, you add -d for the dual or -q for the trial at the end of the word, followed by that shifted vowel (or ∅).
Here's the possible splits for a simple entity and a group entity :

źı qrezȷu = one wolf. | de qrezȷu = a pair of wolves | qań qrezȷu = a trio of wolves.

de qruzȷudu = two wolves, individually | qań qruzȷudu = three wolves splitted into two groups.

qań qrızȷuqı = three wolves, individually.

źı pıqreću = a wolf pack | de pıqreću = two wolf packs together. | qań pıqreću = a trio of wolf packs.

źı pqrećud = a wolf pack splitted into two groups | de pqrećud = two wolf packs separated.

źı paqrećuqa = a wolf pack splitted into three groups | de paqrećuqa = two wolf packs splitted into three groups
qań paqrećuqa = three wolf packs separated.

And so on. You can even mix the splits with noun complements. For example :
fat pıqreću tk zıń qruzȷudu = four wolf packs together, each consisting in six wolves divided into (three) pairs.

Adjectives agree with their nouns, while adverb and other particles are invariable.

As for verbs, they have separated inflections for dual and trial, whether the action is made together, or simultaneously by two or three groups, or by special agents (for example, duȷc «nobody» as an agent gives a trial verb, because "nobody" is "not me, nor you, nor someone else", as three entities).

The mathematical numbers :

Though not having a plural, Aczu Śavnecze allows to count. It uses a shifted decimal system, with digits from -2 to 6 (but the two negative digits are usually ommited). It means that you don't count :
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
But instead :
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10-3, 10-2, 10-1, 10.

Similarly, on the same model as roman numbers (where ɪᴠ is 4 [5-1], xʟ is 40 [50-10], and so on), 70 is [100-30], and 800 is [1000-200]. That explains why 777 is [1000-300+100-30+10-3].

The digits of a same number are agglutinated into a single word. The preposition ańm « before » is placed before the substracted number, so 7 is written as [before-three-ten], and 28 as [before-two-thirty].

Thanks to this table, you can manage to count from 0 to 6999 :
