The ten and hundreds are made by the simple union of the first ten cardinals; thus, san-sent (500), tri-dek (30), etc. Numbers more than 9999 will use he SI prefixes. Ordinal numerals are formed by means of the adjective termination, “a;” thus, kad-a, fourth. The mathematical operations are as follows: +(pol) -(nil) x(mul) /(dif) ^(pof) and (rot). Fractions are denominated by sem, so kad-sem is one fourth.

Names Edit

It is always better to translate the "idea" of a foreign word before attempting to create a new phonetic transcription that may not be recognizable by everyone. Use the native pronunciation as a basis, rather than the spelling. If more than one language is spoken locally, use the dominant one. If it does not belong to any one language, use an international form. (Example: Atlantic becomes Alantik) Use the colloquial pronunciation that locals actually and commonly use, rather than the "proper" or standard pronunciation. If a person chooses to have a Bonadil name, he can choose whatever he wants and does not necessarily have to follow these guidelines. If possible, find a common root between the name of the nation, the language and the people. Cities and locations can be given a Bonadil name, but they will only have an official name if they are internationally known. If full Bonadilization would compromise intelligibility, you can always leave a foreign name as is.

Examples Edit

Universal declaration of human rights Edit

Suldes tcat pas anro bonatadahactasto

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Sul anrosto es fenmainele nikos ud esnumo main bonatadahactasto. Isto es darivele sufi razlog ud kesmutatic ud dzoco mere uni main a speki pas migligspeki.

Story of Babel Edit

Stori pas BABEL

1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

1 Ud sama terra rele un dil ud un spe pas tcat.

9 Tcit es raz liken aismkasle ti BABEL, jinwei JAWEI cohile dil pas sul terra, ud JAWEI cohile isto last tcahara pas terra.

Lord’s Prayer Edit

JAWEI’re tcat sufi etmekomo pas sul 

Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us each day our daily bread; and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us; and lead us not into temptation.

Pater, dire aism colde es fadertes. Dire elizlan movmeregenlan, ti fitesse, ti se fast terra joi fast izulu. Darivto wi wire somdes bred, ud hadibto wire ninbonadzosto, jinwei wisi hadibto sulanro liken foldi dariv jicta, ud ninetmekto wi mainmere envi pas ninbonadzosto.
