*þousand-rule, Bowers**-
Jonathan Bowers extended þe þousands-rule, in þe process, inventing a
new series of numbers. Such numbers preserve þe assorted Indoeuropean
irregularities. Þe names here refer to þe N-d tiling, or þe N+1 polytope.
Þe series extends into þe þousands 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

*þousand-rule, Metric**-
Þe use of metric prefixes to represent polytopes. In þis series, þe
edge is rated as 1000, and þe surtope-name gets its name from þe 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

Þe series continues downwards, to name þe assorted margins, based on þe submultiple prefixes, as if þe base form is "face", wiþ milliface being margin. No name exists as yet for þe 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

Þis series of names are meant to stand in apposition to numbers in most languages, wiþout confusion. In accordance wiþ -hedron and -choron, þey take þe same plural: þat is -on becomes -a.
