Technically that would be ganik -- infinity.
Realistically (and without inventing new terminology) the largest
number expressable in one word is 90,000,000,000 : 90 billion --
inënoinënoden. The largest number expressable without inventing new
terminology would be 99,999,999,999.
inëno -- nine
den -- the root for/of? ten
Large numbers are basically expressed as xy-den = x times 10^(1+y).
This system just sort of came to me and I have stuck with it.
