Mirad Grammar/Numbers
Appearance
Types of Numbers
[edit  edit source] Numerals are words used to vocalize numbers, which are scalar symbols used to count and quantify things and people. For example the numeral two is how the number 2 is read or spoken. Mirad uses Arabic numbers (0, 1, 2, 3...), as in all Western World languages.
 Numerals can be various parts of speech:
 numeric nouns (The score was six to four.)
 numeric pronouns (I want two. Give me the fifth one.)
 numeric determiners (Five days ago. The fifth day. A double dose.)
 prefixes (monochrome, bicentennial, triangle)
 rootwords (anxer....to unite, onxer....to annihilate)
 Numberbased words include:
 cardinal numbers (one, two, three... used in counting and arithmetic)
 ordinal numbers (first, second... indicating ordered position)
 multiplicative numbers (double, triple, foursome...)
 fractional numbers (half, third, hundredth...)
 frequency numbers (once, twice, thrice...)
 miscellaneous numberbased words (only, percentage, annihilate)
Cardinal Numbers
[edit  edit source] The cardinal numbers are words used in counting and reciting numerals such as telephone numbers, social security numbers, and zip codes, and in arithmetic. They are also used as the socalled "ordinal" stem vowels of words that relate to one another in a scalar, hierarchical, or some other ontological relationship. See this in the chapter on Vocabulary Formation.
Units
[edit  edit source] The cardinal unit numerals are formed from the simple and preyglided vowels.
Units 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 o a e i u yo ya ye yi yu zero one two three four five six seven eight nine
 Ata yibdalar sag se 7038426190 (pronounced: yeoiyiueyaayuo).....My telephone number is....
 At tambese 114 (pronounced: aau) Maple Street.
 E gab e se u.....Two plus two is four.
Decades
[edit  edit source] The decade formant l is used to form the decades. Followed by o....zero, we have the base decade numerals. These can be used for number recitation, arithmetic, and as numeric adjectives followed by plural nouns:
Decades with the l Formant 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 alo elo ilo ulo yolo yalo yelo yilo yulo ten twenty thirty forty fifty sixty seventy eighty ninety
 By changing the o....zero in lo to other cardinal unit numerals, the numerals within decades can be generated as follows:
Decadal Counting ala....11 ela....21 ila....31 ula....41 yola....51 yala....61 yela....71 yila....81 yula....91 ale....12 ele....22 ile....32 ule....42 yole....52 yale....62 yele....72 yile....82 yule....92 ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... alyu....19 elyu....29 ilyu....39 ulyu....49 yolyu....59 yalyu....69 yelyu....79 yilyu....89 yulyu....99
 At ayse alo dati.....I have ten friends.
 It yafe sagder byu alyo.....He can count up to fifteen.
 Yulyu gob alo gese yilyu.....Ninetynine minus ten equals eightynine.
Hundreds
[edit  edit source] By adding the hundreds formant s, you get the hundreds:
Hundreds with the s Formant 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 aso eso iso uso yoso yaso yeso yiso yuso
 All the inbetween numerals of the hundreds can be generated by modifying the so ending with the units and decades:
 asa....101
 asale....112
 usyulyu....599
 All the inbetween numerals of the hundreds can be generated by modifying the so ending with the units and decades:
Thousands
[edit  edit source] The thousands are generated with the formant r:

 Note: The number categories starting with the thousands on up end in o and are separated from the rest of a number by a space.
Thousands 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 8000 9000 aro ero iro uro yoro yaro yero yiro yuro
 aro....1,000
 aro a....1,001
 ero isi....2,300
 yoro yasula....5,641
Millions
[edit  edit source] The millions are generated with the formant ml:
Millions with the ml Formant 1,000,000 2,000,000 3,000,000 4,000,000 5,000,000 6,000,000 7,000,000 8,000,000 9,000,000 amlo emlo imlo umlo yomlo yamlo yemlo yimlo yumlo
 emlo yala....2,000,051
 umlo esu....4,000,204
 yumlo usyoro isyala....9,405,361
Billions
[edit  edit source] The billions are generated with the formant mr;
Billions 1,000,000,000 2,000,000,000 3,000,000,000 4,000,000,000 5,000,000,000 6,000,000,000 7,000,000,000 8,000,000,000 9,000,000,000 amro emro imro umro yomro yamro yemro yimro yumro
 In numbers ending in ro (thousand), mlo (million), and mro (billion), these numbers keep the o and are separated by a space from the other elements of the number.
 imro emlo yoro asyula....three billion, two million, five thousand, one hundred fifty one
 iro asyulyo....3,195
 yamlo asyulyo....6,000,195
 alomro yelyomlo asyilyaro yusele....10,075,186,922
Trillions etc.
[edit  edit source] The trillions are generated with the word garale, which means 10 to the positive power of 12 or 10^{12}.
 These numbers do not combine with surrounding numbers.
 i garale....3,000,000,000
 eso garale....200,000,000,000
 Even higher numbers are shown in the Number Chart later in this chapter.
Numeric Determiners
[edit  edit source] Numeric Determiners are adjectives based on numerals that modify a following noun.
Integers
[edit  edit source] The unit numeric integer determiners, which are used to quantify nouns, consist of the cardinal units followed by the unit formant wa. The noun following the numeric determiner is plural if the number is greater than one. The wa formant is used on unit numerals when they are standalone, not when they are part of a larger number. In contrast with English usage, "zero" is followed by a singular noun (zero box vs. zero boxes. Think of it as not a single box).
Standalone Unit Numeric Determiners owa tam awa tam ewa tami iwa tami uwa tami yowa tami yawa tami yewa tami yiwa tami yuwa tami no/zero houses one house two houses three houses four houses five houses six houses seven houses eight houses nine houses
 If a unit number is used in forming larger numbers like 13 or 204, no wa is used.
 In a sequence of noun modifiers, the numerical determiner goes in the same place as in English, eg:
 Ata iwa gajaga twidi bese bay at.....My three older brothers live with me.
 Hia uwa tomi losexwo.....These four buildings will be destroyed.
 At fu ewa ey iwa gouni.....I would like two or three pieces.
 In a sequence of noun modifiers, the numerical determiner goes in the same place as in English, eg:
 The numeric determiners beyond the units do NOT take the wa suffix. For example, ala tami....eleven houses.
Numeric Determiners modifying a singular or plural noun Mirad English Wa Behavior Pluralization Behavior owa tam no houses, zero houses The numeral is a unit,
so wa is suffixed.The numeral is less than 2,
so the noun is singular.awa tam one house, a house " " ewa tami two houses " The numeral is greater than 2,
so the noun is plural.iwa tami three houses " " uwa tami four houses " " yowa tami five houses " " yawa tami six houses " " yewa tami seven houses " " yiwa tami eight houses " " yuwa tami nine houses " " alo tami ten houses The numeral is not a unit
so no wa is suffixed." ase tami a hundred two houses " " ero iwa tami two thousand three houses The numeral i is a unit,
so wa is suffixed." iro alo tami three thousand ten houses The numeral alo is not a unit,
so wa is not suffixed."
 Numeric determiners can be pronominalized as things and persons by suffixing s or t, respectively. These can, in turn, be pluralized by suffixing i. Furthermore, person pronouns can be feminized with a y before the t. The s suffix is short for sun....thing or suni....things. The t ending is short for aot....person or aoti....persons. For example:
 Et ayse awa tam. At gey ayse awas. (singular inanimate pronoun)....You have one house. I have one too.
 At aysa alo drari. Hij at ayse anay ewasi (plural inanimate pronoun).....I had ten pencils. Now I only have two.
 Esa asoti yeb be ha duzam. (plural animate pronoun).... There were a hundred people in the concert hall.
 Yat yefe kebier awoyt bi huti. (singular animate female pronoun)....We must choose one female person from those people.
Ordinals
[edit  edit source] Ordinal numeric determiners (= ordinals) like first, second, etc. are formed from the cardinal numerals by adding the adjectival ending a to the cardinal numeral. A variation of this is with the word nap (order) inserted:
Ordinal Numeric Determiners Cardinal Numeral Ordinal Numeric Determiner Variation with nap (order) o....zero oa....zeroth onapa....zeroth a....one aa....first anapa....first e....two ea....second enapa....second i....three ia....third inapa....third alo....ten aloa....tenth alonapa....tenth asu....104 asua....104th asunapa....104th garale....trillion garalea....trillionth garalenapa....trillionth
 Note: ana is an adjective meaning only, single, eg. Iyt se ana tud.....She is an only child. As an adverb, anay means only, eg. At yexe anay be tam.....I work only at home.
 There are other ordinal adjectives that are not based on numbers:
Ordinal Words Not Based on Numbers Root Word Ordinal Word ij....beginning ijna or ijnapa....first uj....end ujna or ujnapa....last aj....past ajna or ajnapa....ex, former, previous oj....future ojna or ojnapa....future, upcoming ej....present ejna or ejnapa....current, new, present ja....before jana or janapa....previous, last, foregoing jo....after jona or jonapa....next, following za....in front of zana or zanapa....next zo....behind zona or zonapa....last (previous, foregoing)
 Ordinal determiners and adjectives can be converted to adverbs by adding the suffix y to the adjectival counterparts:
Ordinal Adverbs ADJECTIVE ADVERB aa....first aay....firstly anapa....first anapay....primarily ea....second eay....secondly ujna....last ujnay....finally
 Ordinal determiners can be converted to animate pronouns (persons) with the suffix t and inanimate pronouns (things) with the suffix s. These, in turn, can be pluralized with the suffix i. Neutralgender animate pronouns can be made specifically masculine or feminine by changing at to wat for the former, and to ayt for the latter:
 ha aas....the first thing
 ha aat....the first person
 ha aati....the first people
 hua aayt....that first female
 ha enapas....the second thing
 ewat....another guy
 Ha ujnati so ha ijnati.....The last shall be first.
 ha zanapat....the next fellow
 Again, in the sequencing of stacked adjectival elements, the order is as in English, that is: <deictic or pronominal determiner>  <ordinal determiner>  <cardinal numerical determiner>  <adjective>
 hua uwa aga tami....those four big houses
 ha aa alo oga tami....the first ten little houses
 ata anapa ewa oga tudi....my first two little children
Note: Ordinal numeric determiners are not to be confused with ordinal vowels, which are used to derive scalar iterations of nouns. Cardinal numbers are used in the latter case, eg.:
 dob....state (1st level)
 dab....government (2nd level derivative)
 deb....leader (3rd level derivative)
 dib....administration (4th " " )
 dub....minister (5th " " )
Fractions
[edit  edit source] Fractional numeric determiners ( = fractions) like half and quarter are formed by adding yn for those functioning as nouns, yna for adjectives, ynay for adverbs, or yn for prefixes, to the respective cardinal number.
CARDINAL NUMERAL  FRACTION AS NOUN  AS ADJECTIVE  AS ADVERB  AS PREFIX  AS VERB 

o....zero  oyn....a void, vacuum, null  oyna....null, nil    oyn....devoid of  oynxer....annihilate, nullify 
a....one  ayn....whole  ayna....entire, whole  aynay....entirely  ayn....holo, whole, all  aynxer....integrate 
e....two  eyn....a half  eyna....half  eynay....halfway  eyn....half, semi, hemi, demi  eynxer....halve 
i....three  iyn....a third  iyna....third  iynay....by a third  iyn....terci  iynxer....cut in third 
u....four  uyn....a quarter  uyna....quarter  uynay....quarterly  uyn....quadri  uynxer....quarter 
alo....ten  aloyn....a tenth  aloyna....tenth  aloynay....by a tenth  aloyn....deci  aloynxer....decimate 
aso....hundred  asoyn....hundredth, percent  asoyna....hundredth  asoynay....by a hundredth  asoyn....centi  asoynxer....cut by a hundred 
 Here are some examples:
 His uxo ha oynxen bi yata mir.....This will cause the anihilation of our world.
 Ha ayna mir te ayv et.....The whole world knows about you.
 Is se gas vyel ha ayn bi isa goni.....It is more than the whole of its parts.
 Ferad se ayndyana dalzeyn.....French is a holophrastic language.
 Et yafe bier eyn bi is.....You can take half of it.
 Yat yefo eynxer eta yexnix.....We will have to halve your salary.
 Hus sa eynvyan.....That was a halftruth.
 Eso eynzyunida dropek.....There is going to be a hemispheric war.
 Duven his se eynutexea dopar?....Is this a semiautomatic weapon?
 Iynxu hua absakpovel.....Cut that pie in thirds.
 It yeyfe bixwer ay uynxwer.....He should be drawn and quartered.
 Hia nas se aloyn bi hos yat nixa zojab.....This money is a tenth of what we earned last year.
 Ha dep aloynxwu.....The army would be decimated.
 Ewa asoyni bi ha dityan baksa.....Two percent (=hundredths) of the citizenry got sick.
 Hia tom se anay asoyn ge aga vyel hua tom.....This building is only a hundredth as big as that building.
 Hwut se oyntofa.....That guy is naked.
 The fractional adverbs can be used as in these examples:
 Et so aynay dudyefa av eta xeyni.....You will be wholly accountable for your actions.
 Iyt eynay tikabeloka.....She almost (= halfway) threw up.
 Pronominalizations like half of it, a third of them:
 Eynas sa fia.....Half of it was good.
 Eynasi sa fua.....Half of them (things) were bad.
 Esa uwa tobi se hua fukyes. Eynati toja.....There were four people in that accident. Half (of them) died.
 Iynati bi yet se vyaka.....A third of you are right.
 Uynati bi yat yantexe.....A quarter of us agree.
 Alo asoyni bi hia dyesi fyunxwa.....Ten percent of these books were ruined.
Multiples
[edit  edit source] Multiplicative numeric determiners ( = multiples) like double, triple can be formed by adding on to the respective cardinal numeral if the numeral is monosyllabic, otherwise just n. These noun forms can be adjectivized with the suffix a. They can also serve as prefixes on animate nouns, inanimate nouns, and prefixes, as the following chart shows. The prefix ending, n is often dropped.
Multiplicative Numeric Determiners CARDINAL NUMERAL MULTIPLE AS NOUN ...AS ADJECTIVE ...AS ADVERB ...AS PREFIX ...AS VERBMAKER o....zero oon....null oona....nil on....zero onxer....cancel, zero out a....one aon....single aona....single aonay....singly an....uni/mono anxer....unify e....two eon....twosome, double eona....double eonay....doubly en....di/bi enxer....double i....three ion....threesome, triplet iona....triple ionay....triply in....tri inxer....triple u....four uon....quartet uona....quadruple uonay....quadruply un....quadri/tetra unxer....quadruple yo....five yoon....quintet yoona....quintuple yoonay....quintuply yoon*....quinti/penta yoonxer*....quintuple ya....six yaon....sextet yaona....sextuple yaonay....sextuply yaon*....sexi/hexa yaonxer*....sextuple alo....ten alon....decade alona....decadic alonay....by a multiple of ten alon....deca alonxer....multiply by ten aso....hundred ason....hundredfold asona....hundredfold asonay....by a hundredfold ason....hecato asonxer....multiply by a hundred
 * An extra o is added to these prefixes to avoid ambiguity with yan meaning together and yon meaning apart.
 The multiplicative noun dozen is expressed by aleon.
 Aleoni bi pati yizpapa.....Dozens of birds flew by.
 By adding the suffix at to the noun multiple, we get groupings of people. The na in some of these words can be omitted, thereby simplifying the words:
 aonat or aot ....solo, single, person
 aonatser of aotser....become single, become a person
 aonawat....singleton
 eonat or eot....duo, pair, twosome, couple
 eotxer....to copulate
 eontajat....twin
 ionat or iot....trio, threesome, trinity
 iotxer....to do a threesome
 Ionatin....Trinitarianism
 iontajati....triplets
 uonat or uot ....quartet, foursome
 uontajat....quadruplet
 yoonat or yoot....quintet, group of five people
 yoontajati....quintuplets
 yoonati....quintets
 By adding the suffix un instead of on, we get the following:
 aun....unit
 auna....unitary, individual
 aunser....unite
 aunyan....series
 aunyana....serial
 eun....pair
 euna....even, paired, binary
 oleuna....odd, nonbinary, uneven, unpaired
 oleunat....odd man out
 eunxer....even out
 Some examples where the above multiple determiners and derivatives are used:
 Yat naptyopa be eo(na)ti yez bi ha mep.....We marched in twos (= pairs) down the street.
 Asonati upo bay yat bu hia ovdal.....Hundreds (of people) will come with us to this protest.
 Hia ivxel xwe enjabay.....This celebration happens biennially.
 Iyt se untupokyat.....She is a quadriplegic. (Lit: x 4+limb+loss+person)
 Diwe sagu ha auni.....Please count the units.
 Yet gafisa aronay!....You all have improved a thousandfold!
 Tob se entyoyaba sat.....Man is a bipedal creature.
 Note: Sometimes the multiple prefix ending in on in the numbers below ten is shortened to n in common words:
 anzyuk....monocycle
 enzyuk....bicycle
 ingun....triangle
 ungun....quadrangle
 yoongon....pentagon
 yaongon....hexagon
 Note: The prefixes for penta/quinti and hexa/sext must keep the on so as to distinguish them from the prefixes yon....apart and yan....together. This rule does not apply to numbers inside chemical names and formulas (See Coding Chemical Elements).
 yoongona....quintipartite BUT: yonper....separate, go apart
 yaongun....hexagon BUT: yanuper....meet, come together

Metric Units
[edit  edit source] Mirad uses the International System of Units (SI) for rendering measurement units. These symbols are pronounced as if you were spelling each letter out (see the alphabet. Bear in mind that majuscules (uppercase letters are prefaced with the word ag (big). Similarly, Greek letters are rendered by their Greek names (ω = omega, Ω = Omega). The measurement unit names are followed by nak (measurement unit).

 The following chart shows how in Mirad to pronounce coherent derived unit formulae in terms of base units. Note that the backslash means per or divided by and is pronounced gol. The symbol x means times and is pronounced gal. The superscript number is a power and is pronounced gar plus the number (with wa, if a unit number). The negative superscript number is pronounced gor plus the number (again, with wa if a unit number). See Arithmetical Expressions for further information on these terms.

 The SI has a whole list of prefixes that act as multipliers (macro) or dividers (micro) of the above and other measurement units. For example, a kilometer is a meter times a 1,000 (macro unit), whereas a millimeter is a meter divided by a 1,000 (micro unit). Banak means byte, so garalebanak is terabyte. This breaks down to 10^{12} bytes. Here is a table showing the Mirad macro and micro prefixes:

 *Note: The n or on can sometimes be omitted in macroprefixation, especially where there is no ambiguity. The n (but NOT the yn) in the micro prefixes can also sometimes be omitted.
 **Note: The gar (to a plus power) and gor (to a minus power) forms are alternatives for the numeric prefixes beyond 100. For example, billion (10^{9}) could be expressed as garyu(ten) to the 9th power, while billionth could be expressed by goryu ((ten) to the minus 9th power). The prefix garya is composed of the positive exponential operator gar (to the power of), followed by the number 6. The prefix gorale is composed of the negative exponential operator gor (to the root of), followed by the number 12.
The macro and micro values can also be represented with abbreviated symbols, which can be pronounced in Mirad as spelled out alphabetics. Greek letter are rendered by their names in Greek. Upper case equivalents are preceded with ag. Here is a table showing grams:

 12 mm³....(pronounced as:) ale miminaki gar i
Expressing Frequency
[edit  edit source] There are two ways to form determiners of frequency:
 Using jod(i) meaning occasion(s), instance(s), time(s), or
 Using xag meaning frequency
 Here is a chart showing the most common frequency determiners:
Frequentative Determiners "JOD" METHOD "XAG" METHOD MEANING duhogla jodi? duhoxag? how often?, how many times? hogla jodi hoxag how often, how frequently hagla jodi haxag the frequency hegla jodi hexag sometimes, on some occasions higla jodi hixag this often, this many times hugla jodi huxag that often, that many times, so many times huugla jodi huuxag so often, so many times hyogla jodi hyoxag never hyagla jodi hyaxag always, at all times hyegla jodi hyexag any number of times, however often hyigla jodi hyixag as often, the same number of times hyugla jodi hyuxag not as often, some other number of times ga jodi gaxag (vyel) more often (than) ge jodi gexag (vyel) as many times (as), as often (as) go jodi goxag (vyel) less often (than) gla jodi glaxag many times, often gle jodi glexag quite a few times, quite often glo jodi gloxag not so many times, seldom gra jodi graxag too often gre jodi grexag often enough gro jodi groxag too seldom gwa jodi gwaxag as often as possible, most often, most times gwe jodi gwexag an average number of times gwo jodi gwoxag least often, as seldom as possible owa jod oxag never, at no time, zero times awa jod axag once, one time awa ga jod ga axag again, once more ewa jodi exag twice, two times iwa jodi ixag thrice, three times alo jodi aloxag ten times
 Examples:

 Duhogla jodi et akaye hia ekun?....How many times have you won this game?
 At teataye hua dyezun iwa ey uwa jodi.....I have seen that film three or four times.
 At teataye is huugla jodi (or: huuxag) van at bokseye.....I have seen it so many times that I am getting sick.
 Hus xwaye gaxag vyel et te.....That has happened more often than you know.

[edit  edit source] Decimal expressions like 2.5 use the word nod....point as in English.
 Hia bavol kyinse ga vyel 10.8 (alo nod yiwa) kigenaki.....This tomato weighs more than 10.8 (ten point eight) kilograms.
Calendar and Time Expressions
[edit  edit source] The word for calendar is judar. The sections below explain how calendar expressions are formed and used:
Basic Calendar Units
[edit  edit source] Time is divided using the following basic terms:
Calendar Units MIRAD ENGLISH job time jab year jeb season jib month jub day jwob* hour jwab* minute jweb* second
 Note: These would ordinarily be jyob, jyab, and jyeb respectively, but the w glide is much easier to pronounce after the letter j, and is therefore substituted.
Other Calendar Units
[edit  edit source] Other calendar units are formed through the agglutination of numerical stubs to some of the time units above:
Other Calendar Units MIRAD ENGLISH NUMERICAL FORMULA rojab millenium year x 1,000 sojab century year x 100 lojab decade year x 10 eynjab half year year x 1/2 uynjab quarter year x 1/4 yajib semester month x 6 yejub week day x 7 yejubuj weekend day x 7 end eynjwob half hour hour x 1/2

Expressing Dates
[edit  edit source] The following is a how a date (jud) is normally expressed:
 be juab, 11 jieb 2018 joK.....on Monday, February 11th, 1918 A.D.
 A date like 2018 can be expressed as twenty eighteen (elo alyi) or two thousand eighteen (ero alyi).
 The day 11 in the above expression is pronounced ala.
 The acronym for B.C. is jaK, short for ja Krist (before Christ).
 The acronym for the deChristianized "BCE", meaning Before the Common/Current Era is expressed in Mirad with jaEJ (ja ha Eja Joeb).
 The acronym for A.D. is joK, short for jo Krist (after Christ).
 The acronym for the deChristianized C.E. is EJ, shoft for ha Eja Joeb (the Current Era).
 Other date expressions follow:
 be ha 1800 jabi (alyi aso jabi)....In the 1800's (eighteen hundreds)
 ja ha 20a (eloa) asojab....before the 20th (twentieth) century

 Iyt so him ub ha uj bi 2 (ewa) jiab.....She will be here toward the end of January 2nd.
 At taja je ha Tejika Eloni.....I was born in the Roaring Twenties.
Telling Time
[edit  edit source] Clock time expressions use mostly the word jwob (hour) or jwobi (hours).
 Times of the day are expressed in the 24hour European system, or what might be called by Americans "military clock time." So, 3PM in U.S. parlance should be expressed in Mirad as 15 hours (ulo jwobi), which is the same as 15:00 or 15 hundred hours.
 The usual timeofday question is Se duhojwob?....What time is it? [Lit: is whathour?]
 The typical answer is in the format Se alo (jwobi) yuwa. (Lit: (It) is ten hours five). The use of jwobi is optional, but if jwobi is modified by awa....one, then the singular form jwob is used.
 Here are some typical answers:
 Se awa jwob.....It is one o'clock AM [Lit: It is one hour.]
 Se ewa jwobi.....It is two o'clock AM [Lit: It is two hours.]
 Se ale jwobi.....It is twelve o'clock AM.
 Se alyu jwobi elo.....It is 15:30 (3:30 PM).
 Se eli jwobi ali.....It is 23:13 (11:13 PM).
 Se elu jwobi.....It is 24:00 (12 PM).
 The words jwob and jwobi can be abbreviated as j..
 be elo j.....At 8:00 PM
 The designation AM and PM can be used but are not necessary in the 24hour clock system:
 bi maj....(AM)
 bi moj.... (PM)
 Se vyavay 15:10 (= alu alo).....It is exactly 7:10 P.M.. [Lit: It is exactly fifteen ten.]
 Et sa jwoa bey alo jwabi.....You were late by 10 minutes. [Lit: You were late by ten minutes.]
 Has ijo yuz 21:30 (= ela jwobi ilo).....It will begin around 10:30 PM.
 Puu him lojo jwoa vyel 15:00 j.....Get here no later than 3 PM.
 Ha yuzpar puo hum yeb 10 jwabi.....The bus will arrive there within 10 minutes.
 Ha jwobar izeade^{1} 17:00.....The clock says [Lit. indicates] 5 PM.
 Yit pua be 3 j. be ha nod.....They arrived at 3 on the dot.
 Note 1: izeade (indicates) can be substituted with de (says).
 Note the following clock time idioms:
Clock Idioms MIRAD ENGLISH jwa early jwe on time jwo late Se vyavay elo j. It is exactly 8 PM. yub bi zemaj
or yuz bi zemaj.around noon ub zemoj toward midnight yeb bi jwebi within seconds alo jwabi ja hij ten minutes ago [= before now] lojo 3 j. no later than / by 3 o'clock AM. jwobay hourly / by the hour / on the hour Hia pop efxe 2 1/2 (= ewa gab eyn) jwobi.

At saye him ji ewa jwobi. I have been here for [= since] two hours.
Expressing Age
[edit  edit source] Many expressions relating to age are built on the Mirad word for age: jag.
 The typical question is:
 Et se duhojaga?....How old are you? (Lit. whataged)
 A typical answer is:
 At se eli (jabi) (jaga).....I am twentythree (years old).
 The word jaga can be left understood, as well as the word jabi....years:
 At se ilo.....I am thirty.
 Here is a list of important age expressions and categories:
 duhojaga?....how old?
 hojoga....of which age
 hajaga....of the age
 hejaga....of some age
 hijaga....this old

Currency Nomenclature
[edit  edit source] The ISO abbreviation for the currency expressions from various countries of the world are used to form the Mirad equivalents. The lowercase ISO code abbreviation for a particular country's denomination is spelled out in Mirad alphabetics and then the letter n is suffixed (mnemonic for nas....money). Then, since a monetary unit can be considered a proper noun, the first letter is capitalized, eg.:
 The ISO code abbreviation for "U.S. dollar" is "USD".
 Lowercase is "usd"
 Spelled out in Mirad alphabetics is u so da.
 This, with n suffixed, results in usodan.
 Finally, the first letter is capitalized, giving Usodan.
 Pluralized, Usodan becomes Usodani (= U.S. dollars).
 The Euro is therefore Euron.
 The Thai baht is Toheban.
 The Russian ruble is Rouban.
 The ISO codes can be found at List of circulating currencies. A portion of that file is replicated here:
English Currency Name  Currency symbol 
ISO code  Mirad Name 

Jordanian dinar  JD  JOD  Jiodan 
Moroccan dirham  DH  MAD  Miadan 
Australian dollar  $  AUD  Audan 
Bitcoin  ₿  (BTK?)  Batokin 
Brunei dollar  $  BND  Banidan 
Eastern Caribbean dollar  $  XCD  Xucadan 
Hong Kong dollar  $  HKD  Hekidan 
New Zealand dollar  $  NZD  Nizudan 
Singapore dollar  $  SGD  Sogedan 
United States dollar  $  USD  Usodan 
Armenian dram  ֏  AMD  Amidan 
Euro  €  EUR  Euron 
Central African CFA franc  Fr  XAF  Xuafen 
CFP franc  Fr  XPF  Xupofen 
Swiss franc  Fr  CFN  Cufenin 
West African CFA franc  Fr  XOF  Xuofen 
Netherlands Antillean guilder  ƒ  ANG  Anigen 
Danish krone  kr  DKK  Dakikin 
Turkish lira  ₺  TRY  Toroyun 
Mauritanian ouguiya  UM  MRU  Miroun 
Sterling  £  GBP  Gebapon 
Saint Helena pound  £  SHP  Sohepon 
South African rand  R  ZAR  Zuaron 
Russian rouble  ₽  RUB  Rouban 
Indian rupee  ₹  INR  Iniron 
Israeli new shekel  ₪  ILS  Ilison 
 The hundredth fractional unit for most currencies can be converted into Mirad by appending the word asoyn to the end of the Mirad name of the currency.
 For example:
 The American cent is Usodanasoyn.
 The Euro cent is Euronasoyn.
 The British penny is Gebaponasoyn.
 In context, all of the above can be abbreviated to asoyn.
 The symbol used for each currency can also be taken from the Wikipedia table referenced above. The symbol precedes the number and a comma is used for the thousand breaker and a period is used for the decimal breaker. For example:
 Five point six Euros ==> Yowa nod yawa Euroni ==> €5.6
 Two thousand nine dollars ==> Emro yuwa Usodani ==> $2,009
 Note: : The bitcoin has no ISO code, so it is arbitrarily translated into Mirad as Batokin (for BTK). Its billionth fractional unit is called a satoshi and is translated into Mirad as Batokinamroyn.
