Number

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."

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'."

infinity

A boundless or endless quantity, a quantity too large to be quantifiable with real numbers. A crucial concept in the development of calculus and various other mathematical fields.

pi

The ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. “3.14159…….”

fraction (number-forming element)

marker for denominator in a fraction; generalization of {vatlhvI’} “percent” to numbers other than 100. Examples: “one third”, “three quarters”, “nine tenths”, “1/81”. 

Merged from another suggestion by admin: Can this be used to express ratios as well?
