The shapes of the bases:
#n2 to #n9 have similar shapes to each numeral figure in 2 to 9, which are used
worldwide now.. The sizes of all of them are fixed expecting sometimes to be inside
of #69 (the symbol of 0 (zero)). Since the shapes of one and zero are
so simple and useful to form various picture-like compounded-characters,
besides working as numerals, they are included in the group of the general bases.
See here for the usage of the EL numerals.
The Hand Signs:
The signs of one (#02) to nine (#n9) of numerals are all shown with the back of the hand
to the reader. Zero-sign (#69) is the only exception.
One to four are shown by the number of the standing fingers in order from the index
to the next and the next.
The diagonally extended thumb sign represents Five.
Six to Nine are shown as the Five (thumb) plus the number of other fingers,
in order from the pinkie. Because if it's from the index, Eight (folding only pinkie) sign
is difficult to do for many people.
See the below table for pictures of numeral hand shape signs.
Names; The vocal signs of numerals
For distinguishing from the names of ordinary bases, all names of numeral bases have
a velar nasal consonant [N] at the end.
From [piN] to [roN], the articulation places of the head consonants move
from lips to alveolar, gradually inward, and vowels of to are pronounced
with gradually larger opening.
