Word: third



There are few words for describing quantities smaller than 1, including {bID} "half" and {vatlhvI'} "percent". Given that there was formerly a base-3 counting system, are there words for subdivisions 3, such as "third" (or by extension "ninth" or "twenty-seventh")? "Three chebmey are a third of a cheb'a'."
