It would be possible to create larger numbers on the same _cima+Gwr numeral_ pattern, but it's considered impractical. Scientists etc. simply express such things as powers of ten (using Kash words). In popular use are cima-cima and praka-praka (based on the native term for 1000 million) which mean 'any inconceivably huge number, jillion, gazillion'. We don't yet have a term for "infinity", but I'm tending toward pinatrĂºs < pinal 'count; number' + lus 'last'; of course it's not really the "last" number since pinatrus hap mesa 'infinity plus one' etc. is always possible. ----------------- (1) chih was originally 1000 in base 8, but was adjusted up when the decimal system was adopted.
