Again you're missing the natural elements involved. I did some research a while back on numbering systems and decimal is used in all but a few cultures. Those that don't mostly used base-5 or base-20, with only a minute few using anyhing else like base-8. Why base-10? Probably for the obvious reason that we have 10 fingers, and generally that is what young children use when they learn to count. > If you believe that "owa" (5) "owe" (4) and "owy" (3) > sound too much alike, you can use "owa ofo" instead > of "owa," "owe ofy" instead of "owe," and "owy ofe" > instead of "owy." Except you still have the same problem with the possibility of <y> being mispronounced as [e]: owe ofy [owe owe], owy ofe [owe owe].
