Symbology

One of the foremost considerations among dozenalists is how to symbolize the digits of base twelve, and how to pronounce dozenal numbers. It seems each dozenalist arrives at his or her own conclusions. The Dozenal Society of America does not endorse any particular symbols for the digits ten and eleven. For uniformity in publications we use Dwiggins dek (here in HTML we use X) for ten and his el (here in HTML we use E) for eleven. The numbers commonly called “ten”, “eleven” and “twelve” are often pronounced “dek”, “el” and “dough” in the duodecimal system.
