Classification and Dialects[]

88,93 (Number Language) is a language using numbers 0-100 (making it a total of 101 words). In colloquial dialects, a negative sign (-) was previously used to indicate negative meaning. This was also a way to show a desire to do something, but an inability to fulfill it. Numbers can conveniently be spoken in any language, and various keyboard symbols are used for additional grammatical meanings.

Phonology[]

Grammar Note - Words can basically go in any order, so long as it makes sense.

For example: 1,21 -- I am happy.    21,1 -- I am happy. (literally “happy is to me”)

Adjectives can also be used together to indicate mixed feelings or emotions.

For example: 1,25,26 -- I am both sad and upset (a mixture of the two).

Numbers are indicated by using dots, dashes, and exclamation marks.

One dot equals 1, one plus sign equals five, one dash equals 10, and one exclamation mark equals 1000. These can be multiplied to get any possible number. The multiplication symbol is the hashtag. The equal sign is used to indicate equivalence.

For example: .. # -.. =  --.+ (2*12=24) Here’s another one: -... # ! = -...! (13*1000=13,000)

As you may have noticed, spaces are used between numbers and signs to avoid confusion. This is not required in written language, but is standard tradition.

Dashes can also be used before words to indicate a negative meaning. For example: 1,-31 (I’m not coming.) However, this is used primarily in colloquial dialects, and generally not in writing. In the past, this was also a way to show a desire to do something, but an inability to fulfill it. In standard language, dashes are used in between sentences with the function of a period. Dashes are not used, however, with single sentences.

31-40 are basic verbs[]

  • 31 - to come, go, enter
  • 32 - to leave, depart, exit
  • 33 - to know, understand, comprehend, to be capable of, to be able to
  • 34 - to think, believe, want to believe, want to know
  • 35 - to like, love, adore, admire, desire, attract
  • 36 - to remove, be against, disdain, detract, separate, reduce, hurt, pain, panic, cry, shed
  • 37 - to want, desire, expect, relate to, sympathize
  • 38 - to feel, touch, need, hold, grasp, write
  • 39 - to look at, watch, view, observe, notice, spot, see, read
  • 40 - to look around, search, want to find, be careful, take caution

    Fun fact: Odd numbers are generally happy whereas even numbers are generally sad. However, this is not always the case. If you see a number that you don’t like, ignore it.

41-50 are basic objects/nouns[]

  • 41 - home, house, residence, location, situation, heart, hearth
  • 42 - chair, stool, seat, throne, hill, mountain, protuberance, slope
  • 43 - nature, outdoors, outside, weather, element, ocean
  • 44 - clothes, clothing, attire, dress, style, collection, amount, selection, quantity
  • 45 - tool, utility, resource, device, utensil, pen, pencil, instrument (non musical), store, shop, market, cell phone, television

  • 48 - animal, creature, beast, monster, devil, human
  • 49 - ball, rock, circle, spirit, life, earth, ring
  • 50 - book, text, writing, passage, description

    To make a verb reflexive, just repeat the pronoun after the verb. Example: 1,35,1,12,1,14,35,2 (I love myself but I don’t love you.)

51-60 involve location, adjectives, and weather[]

  • 51 - here, close, near, now, today, next to, by
  • 52 - there, away, far, later, tomorrow
  • 53 - short, small, light, thin, arm, hand, foot
  • 54 - long, big, wide, large, fat, heavy, leg, stomach
  • 55 - path, way, road, street, trail, passageway, route, direction, track
  • 56 - rain, snow, sleet, ice, hail, color, white, winter
  • 57 - warmth, sun, daytime, radiance, fire, spark, beauty, brightness, clarity, yellow, summer
  • 58 - cold, wet, nighttime, rigid, damp, shadow, darkness, obscurity, black
  • 59 - grass, ground, floor, land, fertility, meadow, heath, green, spring
  • 60 - blood, color, dye, sweat, tears, bone, killer, red, autumn

    As you can see, the only way to distinguish rain from snow is by context.

For example: 8,56,51 (It rains here.)  16,8,58,56 (When it is cold out it snows.)

Question marks signify a question. Therefore if you wanted to ask “What is that?” it would be “8,8?” Too confusing? Just learn Spanish.

61-64 are objects[]

  • 61 - water, fluid, liquid, juice, drink, beverage, lake, pond, stream, river
  • 62 - bag, case, satchel, purse, container, bottle, cup, glass(drink), absence, bottom, downward, bowl, hole, abyss
  • 63 - plant, flower, bush, shrub, neck
  • 64 - covering, hair, hat, jacket, coat, blanket, town, city, bridge, border, topping, addition

65-70 are adjectives[]

  • 65 - sweet, soft, savory, sugary, delicious, adorable, cute, pet, nice, friendly, sexy, curved, round, fluffy, cozy
  • 66 - crude, hard, solid, mean, awful, evil, unpleasant, not enjoyable, intolerable, frustrating, toxic, poisonous
  • 67 - fun, funny, amusing, enjoyable, entertaining, awesome, wacky
  • 68 - religious, holy, complicated, fancy, spirited, sacred, ancient
  • 69 - full, complete, finished, done, ready, prepared, valuable, meaningful
  • 70 - empty, hungry, vacant, gone, absent

    Grammar Note: There is no past tense. Now you can stop living in the past and start living in the NOW. There is, however, a future tense. To use the future tense, simply place quotation marks around the verb.

For example: 2,”31”,51? (Will you come here?)

Note: For translation purposes, the past tense is indicated by placing an @ symbol after the verb.

As you may have guessed, some verbs such as “to be” and “to have” are implied and thus can indicate the present or the future.

71-80 are verbs[]

  • 71 - to eat, drink, take in, taste, absorb, bite, swallow
  • 72 - to talk, speak, sing, release, eject, spit, throw up
  • 73 - to start, begin, happen, attempt, try, wear, put on, place, run, race, trot, compete
  • 74 - to stop, slow, fall, trip, drop, depreciate, stutter, falter, decline, lose, fail, die
  • 75 - to wake up, get up, be aroused, rise, focus, pay attention, grow, develop, continue, survive
  • 76 - to act, behave, obey, deliver, gratify, follow, pursue, listen, satisfy, allow, enable

  • 78 - to hit, punch, attack, wrestle, wrangle, smash, destroy, break, ruin, mess up, punish, banish, force, pressure, cook, roast, bake, fry, kill
  • 79 - to make, do, clean, create, play, inspire, convince, persuade, promote
  • 80 - to ignore, decline, refuse, reverse, backtrack, forget, lose, fall behind, procrastinate

    Grammar Note: There is no plural form of words. Everything is neutral.

Tip: try saying the words in another language. This way, if one learns the language, they can still be left out of the conversation.

Names can be spelt out using letters. Example: Jerold,51 (Jerold is here.)

  • 81 - game, sport, effort, attempt, journey, voyage, trip, tennis, baseball, soccer, football, basketball...

Test[]

Grammar practice: 1,38,65,66,87 (I’m holding sweet, hard candy.)

Another example: 1,“39”,2,1,12,58,58,100 (I will see you in my coldest, darkest nightmares.)

Words are frequently used in combination with other words to create new meaning. For example: 8,95,94! (What a blessing from the universe!)

Another one: 17,14,73,79,1,71,58,58,85,86 (Please don’t try to convince me to eat the cold, damp, cardboard-like meat.)

Square roots can be used to show that something is a possibility, but is not certain. For example: √1,27 (I might be happy.) Alternatively, a V may be used in lieu of the square root symbol.

Squared signs show that something is definite, and not uncertain. For example: 2,99^ (You have determination.) Because the verb “have” is implied here, the sign comes after the noun, and not the subject. Generally the sign is placed at the end of a sentence or after an adjective for reinforcement, though there is no real limitation to its placement. Occasionally you will see something like: 1,35,8^,60 (I like that color.) In this case, the sign reinforces that you like a specific color.

The * sign means that something is not going to happen, or is impossible. For example: I,38,50* (It’s not possible for me to write a book.) Just as with the squared sign, this is usually placed at the end of a sentence, but has no official limitations.

Don't worry, once you're fluent this will all make sense. :)

Now do more practice: . $,79, ......., 89, 76,28^,28^,26^ (One dollar convinces seven people to act lousy, unintelligent, and disturbed.)

2,14,37,78,6,26^,66^,89,52?! (Don’t you want to punch those crazed, awful people over there?!)

1,”31”,41,19,62,60,87,11,44,21^,63,13,1,90 (I will enter the home with a bag of red candy and a beautiful selection of flowers for my wife.)

It's all about context -- the last thing we'd want in the last example is for you to be entering the home with “blood candy” or “blood medicine”

More words are being added every day...So I wish you good luck in your endeavors and I say to you “Auf Wiedersehen”. Thank you.

Total number of words: 101

Example text[]

1,35,1,12,1,14,35,2 (I love myself but I don’t love you.)

It can also look like this: 1/35/1/12/1/14/35/2
