Yeah, well commoners do tend to do that.

Personally, binary and hex does it for me. Never did really get into octal though. I supposed could use an odd base to really shake things up.

It would be interesting to see how you would denote actual numbers vs numeric words. Or maybe they would be interchangeable. Perhaps you could create new sentences from others by applying assorted mathematical operations. OK, now my brain hurts.
