A question regarding dictionary entries

From:Sylvia Sotomayor <terjemar@...>

I am redesigning my dictinary for Kelen (yet again), and I am planning
on having short glosses (one word, maybe two) for each stem or base
word, and also longer definitions for each fully formed and inflected
word. My question: given that Kelen has a base 8 counting system,
should I gloss 'āllōr' as 32 or 40? It has the functional equivalent
of 40 in the language, being 8x4, but refers to 32 things.
