*thousand-rule, Bowers**-
Jonathan Bowers extended the thousands-rule, in the process, inventing a
new series of numbers. Such numbers preserve the assorted Indoeuropean
irregularities. The names here refer to the N-d tiling, or the N+1 polytope.
The series extends into the thousands as well.0 10 20 30 decades centuries 0 dakon icon tracon 1 gon hendakon ikenon trakenon 100 hoton 2 hedron dokon icodon tracodon 200 doton 3 choron tradakon ictron tracotron 30 tracon 300 troton 4 teron teradakon icteron tracoteron 40 teracon 400 teroton 5 peton petadakon icpeton 50 petacon 500 petaton 6 exon exdakon icexon 60 exacon 600 exoton 7 zettin zettadakon 70 zettacon 700 zettaton 8 yotton yottadakon 80 yottacon 800 yottaton 9 xennon xendakon 90 xencon 900 xennoton Examples: 123 hotictron 999 xennotaxennocoxennon

*thousand-rule, Metric**-
The use of metric prefixes to represent polytopes. In this series, the
edge is rated as 1000, and the surtope-name gets its name from the metric
prefix for 1000^n
tera- = 1e12 -teron = 4d tiling or 5d polytope peta- = 1e15 -peton = 5d tiling or 6d polytope exo- = 1e18 -exon = 6d tiling or 7d polytope zetto- = 1e21 -zetton = 7d tiling or 8d polytope yotto- = 1e24 -yotton = 8d tiling or 9d polytope

The series continues downwards, to name the assorted margins, based on the submultiple prefixes, as if the base form is "face", with milliface being margin. No name exists as yet for the second-margin.N-2 N-3 N-4 N-5 N-6 N-7 N-8 N-9 milli- micro- nano- pico- femto- atto- zepto- yocto- margin nanol picol femtol attol zeptol yoctol

This series of names are meant to stand in apposition to numbers in most languages, without confusion. In accordance with -hedron and -choron, they take the same plural: that is -on becomes -a.
