2. No need to bework "ten" as "dek". It stands well on its own.
3. Eleven can be shortened like its sister word, "twelve". Shortened further from the Old English shape which was "one left [from ten]". https://quod.lib.umich.edu/m/middle-english-dictionary/dictionary/MED13296/track?counter=1&search_id=3847090
4. Twelve also stands well as it is. It's short from "two left [from ten]". Eleven and Twelve are leftovers from when the Germanic folks had some shape of twelvishway.
5. The -teen (meaning: "of ten")is swapped out for the standalone "Twelve" word and set. The 'teen' rime names are also made to be more steady with the rest of the sets. So, 14 = four and twelve; 24 four and twentel; 34 = four and thirtel; and so on. This is the older Germanic way of naming the rimes, which was likely upset by Danish and/or Norman influence on English. The folk song Sing a Song of Sixpence shows the older word-order, which goes: Sing a song of sixpence, / A pocket full of rye, / Four and twenty (24) blackbirds / Baked in a pie.
6. Twelve now stands smoothly on its own as the newfrom which to .
7. Twentel. The ten-grounded way has the "-ty" ending, which comes from an older shape of the word "ten". Here "twelve" stands in for ten, so theis now "-tel", a shortening of "-twelve". The goal is to match "twelve" into how it might have been wildly shaped over time, as "ten/tige" dropped to "-ty", "twelve" dropped here to "-tel".
8. The shapes of two, three, and four when fastened with -tel take the same shape as they did in, as if the words had grown wildly as English grew old. (Twenty -> Twentel; Thirty -> Thirtel; Forty -> Fortel.)
9. True English words havesuch as "f" which are when found between or left as is between two other withdins. These spellings show how this would work for these rimes, following English speaking ways.
A. "Hundred" comes from "hund" (ten) + "rath" (great telling). The "hund/cent" comes from the same root as "dek/ten". In other words, it's "a great ten", or "ten tens". So, we swap out the word for "ten" here for "twelve", in the same way we did earlier, and we get "Telred" to mean "a great twelve", or "twelve twelves".
B. Instead of the Thousand/Million/Billion/Trillion way that came about a bit oddly, the whole thing has been set from the start so it's much steadier. The name of theis told by its order of magnitude. "Thousand" is made of "thou-" (swollen) "-sand" (ten). So again we get a "swollen ten". The names I've chosen are taken from their foot- (one, two...) and "-thou" (to swell).
10. For the below, all one need do is eke the stock English "-th" , as we already do in words like "hundredth".
