Grayis


Pronunciation

(Grayis) IPA: /ʧɪlˈli:k.ka/

Number

chillīkka

  1. twenty-seven. Because Grayis uses a nonal (base-9) number system, this represents the numeric value of 27, but the semantic value of 30 (10×3). Instead of the expected **chillā, this number hearkens back to an earlier form, reflecting the base-3 origins of the number system, deriving from an original ‘great three’.
