Re: an ain aiin as numbers...?

Hi everyone,

EVA "d" might then be a code for "V" (or perhaps "U" as well) - and "daiin" could be VIII (ie 8). "dain dain" could be "6 6" - ie, 66 or perhaps 6x6.

Ooops - "dain dain" would actually be "7 7" - ie, 77 or perhaps 7x7. But the principle remains the same. :-)

Also: "ar", "air", and "aiir" might encode "1st", "2nd", and "3rd" (etc).

Note that if this is true, then it is quite possible that one or other of "a(i*)r" and "a(i*)n" only appears within numbers, whereas the other one would also be used in words containing "i".
