Numerals[edit source]

There are 2 numeral systems in Mifernian.

Mifernian numerals[edit source]

Mifernian numerals work like Roman numerals.
Numerals are marked by a ▵ character in the Mifernian script.
∠ = 1 ≤ = 2 ⋜ = 3 ⟔ = 4 ⟆ = 5
⟓ = 6 ⊩ = 7 × = 8 ⨰ = 9 ≘ = 10
≒ = 20 ∨ = 30 ∓ = 40 ± = 50 ⟇ = 60
∺ = 70 ⊥ = 80 ≪ = 90 ⋖ = 100 ⟀ = 200
⋌ = 300 ≠ = 400 ⋈ = 500 ⊼ = 600 ⊒ = 700
⩛ = 800 ⋉ = 900 ≑ = 1000 ≶ = 1000000
↿ = *1000 (eg. ≤↿ = 2000)
↟ = *1000000 (eg. ≤↟ = 2000000)

Examples:
▵∠ 1
▵≘∠ = 11
▵⋉≪⨰ = 999
▵≑⟀∨⟔ = 1234
▵≤↿≒≤ = 2022
▵∨≤↿⊒⟇× = 32768
▵⋖≒⋜↟≠±⟓↿⊒⊥⨰ = 123456789

Should we call it New Mifernian script or just Mifernian script?
