Hallo and Good Morning!
I am Hans-Rudolf, from Germany, and I am looking into dozenal. i have been visiting for some time as 'Guest'.
My nickname is "Einmaleins", which for those here who do not understand German, is translated in English as "Times Table". I have some ideas which i shall present later.

And good morning and welcome to you!

I look forward to reading any ideas you can suggest for suitable dozenal counting words in German.

Hmmm, I suppose if there can be languages whose word for "character-list" is just the first entries in it -- alpha-beta ... 'a-b-ja-d --- then it's fair to say that there could be a language whose word for "multiplication table" is just the first entry in that -- "one-times-one".

Yes, I think it is an important topic. I have looked at that old Teliosadik post and realised no-one has really delved into this.

Willkommen im Forum, Hans-Rudolph! :)

Thank you; and it is Hans-Rudolf with f not ph.

I have also looked at your many linguistic contributions and creations; almost your own thesaurus! Many hours of work.

Apologies, corrected it.

Amazing what tricks the mind will play when one is trying to type on a narrow cell-phone screen, and a name one has read only moments before has scrolled out of sight. And it's an apt demonstration why it's best to leave the translation of an idea to a native speaker of the target language -- it's hard to escape the habits and patterns of one's own language.

No one here has tried to tackle "Dozenal Deutsche" because we just are not native speakers. But we'd encourage you to try.

And similarly, the traditional Chinese name for the multiplication table is the "nine-nine" table.

Likewise, welcome, Hans-Rudolf! happy.gif

English has so many little quirks - with names and 'ph' you have Ralph and Rolf, for example. Why should the ph not change to f? Language usage is fascinating.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

Willkommen Hans-Rudolf, wo kommen Sie in Deutschland?
Ich bin Englšnder, aber lebte in Hamburg seit 5 Jahren als Kind.

Thats the last time I'll try my meager repetoire of German.

Einmaleins, what is you business. It would be interesting to see if that has any reason for you becoming interested in base 12. I also know there was a large following in Bavaria for weights and measures based on twelve, a rod of 6 feet, a foot of 12 inces, an inch of 12 lines and a line of 12 points.
