Happy 2012!

Happy new year! Some time ago (last year, actually) I made a post on numbers across my conlangs. Since then, I’ve made many other languages (it’s hard to believe Lindavor was my latest conlang in July!), so it’s time I updated that list. In that post I used a relatively low number as an example: 15. This time, I’ll go for a larger one… 2012!

Note: If a language uses a base other than 10, it will be indicated in brackets after its name.
