We need to use numbers quite often but we have trouble remembering them because our method for learning and recalling the numbers requires brain space. The method proposed here is to compress the old spoken forms of the numbers into shorter more easily spoken words which use less brain space.

This system uses about twenty percent less time to think and to pronounce the numbers and therefore you can remember twenty percent more of them. If you have a short term memory of seven numbers using the old English pronunciation, then with this new system you sould remember about nine. That may not seem like much but on the memory portion of an IQ test that would raise your score from average to near genius.

The old number system was cobbled together by historical accident and is needlessly sloppy, imprecise, confusing, error prone, mistake-creating and disaster-inducing. Proba Numbers system improves on the old one with an easily spoken three letter syllable for each single digit number and other numbering components. These have been designed to prevent confusion by combining smoothly and distinctly into the larger multi-digit numbers. Also, although the pronunciation of the numbers may, at first, sound childish, they are easily recognizable by an English speaker.

This system will work best with children who learn it as their native number system but for the rest of us it will always be a second language and therefore not quite so good as a native speaker. However, even we can benefit.

The usual preferred pronunciation is in the first column. When using the extended pronunciation for the numbers from 10 to 19 the teen (ten) sound has been moved to conform with all of the other numbers from 20 to 99. Sometimes for additional clarity it is desirable to indicate the decimal placement. This can be done by saying a positioning indicator such as the old form of thousand, million, billion etc. which is usually indicated with a comma. (See also: The Metric System Contracted). The point at the end of a whole number and beginning a smaller than whole number is pronounced pit.
