# Numbers

When spoken, numbers in Miwāfu are spelled out with a leading particle to indicate that it is a number.

# Numeral Particle

The beginning of a number series is indicated by `we`

.

The end of a numerical sequence is either a pause between words or `nwe`

.

# Scales

With large numbers, over five digits, the typical convention is to write them out with a space or letter between each group of four. The gruoping is from left to right. The space is not required.

To simplify numbers, `do`

is used to indicate four zeros.

In addition to `do`

, there are additional scale syllables used for large numbers.

Zeros | Description | Syllable |
---|---|---|

1 | Ten | mya |

2 | Hundred | pyu |

3 | Thousand | nyu |

4 | 10 Thousand | do |

8 | 10 Million | kya |

12 | 10 Billion | jyo |

16 | 10 Trillion | shyo |

Like `do`

, these can easily be combined together to indicate more zeros.

These can be combined together:

To do numbers like the English phrase "one thousand and one", see *Mathematics* below.

# Decimals

The decimal indicator is `rya`

.

# Negatives

If the leading `we`

is suffixed by `-yo`

, it indicates a negative number.

# Mathematics

Simple math, addition and subtraction, is done with additional suffixes. `-yo`

is used for subtracting values.

For addition, `-ko`

is used.

In a series of math, only the final needs a `nwe`

if one is required.
