Well, in rtemmu, it could be: (Please remove all chewing gum from your mouth and swallow your saliva! ;-) ): tuktukt'ishushukuko`g tuk go`go`o`gwgaga (tuktuk-t'i-shushukuk-o`g-tuk go`go`-o`g-wgaga) o` = [O]; ' = glotttal stop; sh = [S]; tuktuk = 2 (base 8; in rtemmu numbers have different names in base 10 and in base 8) t'i = to the power of shushukuk = 8 (base 8) o`g = compounding particle tuk = 1 (base 8) thus tuktukt'ishushukuko`g tuk = byte ( 2 to the power of 8 as a unitary process) go`go` = googol (I confess: I just made up this word; chose the phonology to fit in with the overall "music" of the phrase ;-) ) wgaga = the process of giggling Of course, all that is without the rate-of-change marker! It should probably be "subjective", but at what rate? Let's use an accelerating fast rate of change, |utne| and we'll also need to stress that it is an emotional exclamation, thus putting |va'i| ahead of the whole thing. So, for _googolgigglabyte_ as a crazed byte of mind-giggle: va'i utne tuktukt'ishushukuko`g tuk go`go`o`gwgaga!
