In Gladilatian two transfinite cardinals have their own names:
_srmo_, the cardinality of the integers, and _fryma_, the cardinality of the
reals. The aleph and beth systems are formed by modifying _msoru_ "aleph"
and _msuto_ "beth" with ordinals. N.B. Gladilatian ordinals for the aleph
and beth notations are one off from English. So _zmrzno_msoru_, literally
"first aleph", is "aleph naught", and _zmrfsut_msoru_, literally "second
aleph", is "aleph one".
