twenty is calt

calt = twenty (Lhaesine pronunciation = CAHLT) (adjective) (number) (some things Google found for "calt": an uncommon term; a last name, notably author Stephen Calt; CALT is an acronym for The Centre for Advanced Learning Technologies in France; CALT stands for China Academy of Launch Vehicle Technology in Aerospace; CALT is an acronym for Computerized Achievement Levels Tests; Calt Silicone Rubber Products (Nanjing) Co., Ltd of China; CALT stands for Conjunctiva-associated lymphoid tissue; CALT stands for Computer Assisted Language Testing (or Teaching))

Twenty is where my counting numbers upwards ends, at least for now. I'm thinking that the number system will be base twenty, instead of our familiar base ten. Apparently this means that in the land of Lhae you count on your fingers and your toes.

This word has been revised. The Lhaesine word for "twenty" is now "weth". This posting is no longer current.
