## Numbers in Solresol: Solresol numbering rules

The numeration proceeds by periods of six numbers, each number being a name made of three notes, never repeating the same note three times (an implicit rule of Solresol).
From one to six, words begin with *re*, the second note is discriminating and repeated once, with the exception of *re*: *redodo* [1], *remimi* [2], *refafa* [3], *resolsol* [4], *relala* [5], and *resisi* [6]. Zero is *soldo*, which means *nothing*.
From seven to twelve, the two first notes are *mimi*, the third one being cyclical, *mi* not being represented: *mimido* [7], *mimire* [8], *mimifa* [9], *mimisol* [10], *mimila* [11], and *mimisi* [12].
We then go to the next series, from thirteen to eighteen, which first note is *mi* and the second cycling from *do* to *si* (bypassing *mi*) and repeated once: *midodo* [13], *mirere* [14], *mifafa* [15], *misolsol* [16], *milala* [17], and *misisi* [18].
The next series goes from nineteen to sixty, its two first notes are *fafa*, the third one cycling from *do* through *si* (bypassing *fa*): *fafado* [19], *fafare* [20], *fafami* [30], *fafasol* [40], *fafala* [50], and *fafasi* [60].
We then go to eighty, then to the powers of ten, beginning with *fa* followed by the cycle from *do* to *si*, repeated once (and bypassing *fa*): *fadodo* [80], *farere* [100], *famimi* [1,000], *fasolsol* [million], *falala* [billion], *fasisi* [trillion].
By construct, Solresol belongs to the short scale numbering systems as each scale number multiple of one thousand has a name (*fasolsol* [million], *falala* [billion], *fasisi* [trillion]).
It could be interesting to think about the bigger scale names. Logical series for 10^{15}, 10^{18} and 10^{21} would be either *soldore* (to copy), *soldomi* (to imitate) and *soldofa* (example), or *soldodo* (Sunday), *solrere* (past) and *solmimi* (present). As Solresol is based on a very restricted set of notes, neologisms quickly come into conflict with existing words if we want to keep their internal logic (here the fact that a number is made of three syllables).

Invented by the French Jean-François Sudre from 1827 on and published posthumously in 1866, Solresol is an artificial language based on the seven musical notes from C (do) to B (si). As it can be represented in many ways, such as by words, sounds, colors, digits, or notes drawn on a written stave or figured by four fingers, it has vocation for universality. Fell into disuse after some success at the beginning of the twentieth century, it is not really practised anymore.Here is a list of numbers in Solresol.
