Indonesia uses the Arabic names, altho Sunday is generally (and in the textbooks) (hari) minggu, also the word for 'week', < Port. Domingo. In more staunchly Islamic areas, it is ahad ('one'); then everywhere (hari) senen [s@nEn], selasa, rebo, kemis, jum'at, saptu. These are the Arabic names for 2,3,..,5..,7-- I'm not sure about rebo and jum'at. The months use the Western names, adapted from Dutch; of course the Islamic calendar is also used for religious purposes. Really complete calendars also include the traditional 5-day Javanese week, which I think is still followed in Bali, again for religious purposes. The Balinese "calendars" are little works of art, every day is depicted as auspicious (or not) for various activities. Obconlang: Planet Cindu had a pretty bare-bones numbered system until this thread came along and I've had to think about it. Also, I haven't posted some of the basics for a long time (if ever on Conlang; some appeared on Conculture). Counting in Kash: a decimal system. Zero is tanda; then (combining and/or fast forms in parens.) mesa (mes), ro, sila (sit), ha, nim, keli (ket), sor (sot), fanu (fan), sana (san); 10 is mepola; 11 folames, folaro, folasit etc...i.e. fola+short form; 20 rofola, 30 sipola, 40 hafola, 50 nipola, 60 kepola etc. The rule here is: if the short unit ends in a Consonant, fola > pola; understandably, there is a tendency to use -pola in all cases. 100 me/rongo, 200 lo/rongo (#rVr.. dissimilates > lVr..) etc. 1000 mes/amba; 1,000,000 mes/ambraka (< amba raka 'big thousand'); 1,000,000,000 is (mesa) pambraka (< contracted amba ambraka). There are more, but I don't yet know how to say "10 to the 12th power" etc. Telling time: The planet orbits its sun in 1 year (pehan) of 464 days (lero). Their day = 25h20m terran; they divide it into 20 hours (aro) of 50 minutes (nasa) of 100 seconds (tiki); so in our terms, their hour is 76 mins., their minute is apprx. 1.5 mins., their second is apprx. .9 sec. Their day, like ours, begins at midnight. They call a clock pinaro (pinal 'count' + aro), wristwatch pinaci (+ci 'diminutive'). 464 days divides nicely into 16 months (ashurak) of 29 days each. They divide these into 4 weeks (kelero, colloq. krelo) of 7 days; the extra day is assigned to the middle of the month (and called cinjurak), is unnumbered, and always a free day. The first day of each week(1,8,15,22) is also a free day. So their calendar looks like: week one:1 2 3 4 5 6 7 week two:8 9 10 11 12 13 14 -Cinjurak- week three: 15 16 1718 19 20 21 week four: 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 and every month, and every year, begins on the same day. (The year begins, BTW, on the Northern Hemisphere's Vernal Equinox.) In the case of leap years (apprx. every 20 years) the extra day (called "Waiting day", a holiday) is inserted, unnumbered, just prior to whichever equinox or solstice is most off-schedule. (Frankly, I'm not at all sure of this .....???) The names of the seven days are: 1. Lembrim (old < leromin 'our sun'), 2. Uwam, 3. Kayiñ [kajN], 4. Wuruna (a myth. character and the name of the larger moon), 5. Imbar, 6. Turat, 7. Lalap (< the name of the smaller irregularly-shaped moon, Yalalap, ult. < ulap 'stagger, reel' after its eccentric orbit). And Cinjurak (< cini 'middle' + ashurak).. The first of the month is usually called Lero mes, or Mesa; the 28th is called Lero lus or Lalap lus (lus 'end; last'). The last day of the year is called Pehandus; New Year's Day is called Pehangasi (< kasi 'begin'); both are holidays. (Note: lero [animate] 'sun', lero [inanim.] 'day') The month names are compounds of ashurak (ashur- ~shur-) with the short form of the numbers: ashumbres, ashuro, ashusit, ashukra, ashundrim, ashukret, ashusor, ashupran, ashusan, ashuprot, shupromes, shuporo, shupronim, shuproket. As nearly as I can figure, Cindu is currently in the year 758 p.w. (pinal welu, 'new count'). 'Old count' pinal marok was abandoned on Pehandus 2703 by decision of the post-nuclear war conference-- that war took place on 10 Ashumbres 2702, yes, just one day. Bonus points: Temperature: a centigrade system, presumably the same as ours...? Measurement: Metric; like ours, the basic unit _li_ is 1/10,000,000 of the pole-equator distance, which works out to 11,171.79 km; so the li = 1.l7 metres or 43.98 inches. 1000 li called _cili_--- these are Gwr terms, used worldwide. The Gwr, of course, had this all figured out long ago-- in their base-8 system. With much argument and several generations-worth of confusion, they changed to a decimal system around 2400p.m.
