KGT 73:  The independent words for the numbers three through nine were not originally a part of the Klingon counting system, but they had to come from somewhere. The musical scale is the likely source. The word for the fourth musical tone, {loS}, began to be used for the number four, and so on through the eighth tone, {chorgh}. (The origins of the words {Hut} [nine] and the suffix {-maH}, used in the words for ten, twenty, thirty, and so on, are obscure.)

KCD:  The Chalice of Kahless is kept full of wine in front of "The Tracker" sculpture and refilled every ninth day, just in case Kahless returns.

HutDIch  		ninth (9th)
HutmaH  		ninety (90)
Hutvatlh  		nine hundred (900)

Hutvagh  		too many people or things in a place all at once (n),
Hut'In  		nail (n)
Hut'In vIl  	screw (n)
Hut'Inmey tIq  	[weaving sticks, knitting needles, crochet hook] (n)
