S'Pht Numbers
Posted By: Steve LevinsonDate: 12/30/02 9:14 a.m.

In Response To: Re: The little Esperanto of Bungie fans :P (Vid Boi)

You've codified words for the numbers 1-10 in S'Pht, but do the S'Pht use a base ten numbering system? We have references to the 11th clan, which should give us a clue if their base is greater than 10 (not that eleven does so in English, though), but are there examples of larger numbers that could help us to discern their numbering base? The F'lickta seem to have 3 claws per hand as per the image in Charon Doesn't Make Change in Terminal 4, and to me it looks like this was preserved in the "hands" of the S'Pht shown in Terminal 1 on the same level. This would suggest that they most likely would have used a base 6 number system, but perhaps the Jjaro gave them their numbering system, and God knows what they used.
