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". =========================================================================== Dennis Paul Himes <> Gladilatian page: "Zmrfsut msoru zmrfsut msuto" - the Continuum Hypothesis in Gladilatian
