Word: thousandth



There are few words for describing quantities smaller than 1, including {bID} "half" and {vatlhvI'} "percent". Are there words for smaller decimal subdivisions than a hundredth, such as "thousandth" (or by extension "tenth", "ten-thousandth", &c)? "Fifty-eight 'ujmey are about one thousandth of a kellicam."
