Talking Numbers

Talking Numbers : Numbers have always fascinated mankind. The ancients attached mystical significance to numbers and believed they held all the mysterious to the origins and systematic functioning of the universe.

Indeed, numbers can talk if only we know how to decipher their secret meanings. The word number itself has many meanings, besides the regular mathematical definition, one of these being: a song, dance or other musical item, according to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary.

In this chapter, we will let numbers do the talking in unlocking the meaning of hitherto esoteric or meaningless words. The words on these pages are either directly derived from numbers or have numbers embedded in their etymology (roots) or meanings.

You are welcome to share your talking numbers with the rest of the world by submitting them to us. We will add those words in these lists.
