lon! mi lon ma Kanata
I wasn't aware that Sonja has spoken before about money. I searched on google, but didn't find anything. Do you know where I should look?
Regarding ages and dates, has anyone suggested using something like the traditional Chinese calendar? The traditional Chinese calendar didn't number its years. The years were named things like "fire pig" or "water horse". The cycle consisted of five elements (fire, water, earth, metal, wood -- seli, telo, ma, kiwen, kasi) and twelve animals, so it repeated every 60 years, which didn't cause any problem in practice.
(If neccesary, the cycles could be numbered. That way, historians could say something like "the fire pig year of the third cycle of the Ming dynasty" or something.)
I'd suggest using the Chinese calendar, except I don't think we have words for all 12 animals, do we?
By the way, I'm very happy to learn that we have a word for "week" -- tenpo esun. Now if I want to say my birthday is on October 31, I can say it's on the second day of the fifth week of October (tenpo suno tu en tenpo esun luka tan kama di tenpo mun di nampa luka luka). I like that I don't have to resort to using big numbers.
