This system of names for powers of twelve is inspired from the Duodecimal Myriad System nomenclature proposed by Takashi, 1st March 2019, http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~dd6t-sg/univunit-e/revised.pdf and the derivative Dozenal Mylliad Nomenclature, https://dozenal.forumotion.com/t8-dozenal-mylliad-nomenclature.

Positive exponents indicated by dozenal "digits" to the left of the fractional point or dozenal zot produce a suffix -on.

Negative exponents indicated by numerical figure characters to the right of the dozenal zot lead to a suffix -ino.

The -on or -ino suffixes for whether the exponents are positive or negative are suggestive of the names of particles such as the neutron and the comparatively small neutrino.

Dozenal numerical characters are grouped in fours.

The number of groups of four numerical characters from the same sign of exponent is indicated by a prefix standing for a counting number derived from Greek. These prefixes are as tabulated.

If the prefix already ends with the vowel letter i, then when that prefix is joined to the suffix -ino, the i of one of those affixes is removed so that the vowels i do not appear twice and side-by-side in the middle of the formed word. For example, the prefix tri- joined to the suffix -ino becomes trino, not tri-ino.

The vowel letter i in the suffix -ino is removed when it appears after the letter y of the prefixes my- or dy-.

The prefixes for numbers of groups of four digits that are multiples of twelve up to the dozenth multiple of twelve groups of four and beyond are formed by combination of a prefix for the number of twelve groups of four characters followed by the prefix for the twelve of the groups of four. For example, the prefix for two dozen groups of four numerical characters on the same side of the dozenal zot would be dyz-.

A vowel letter -a- may be added between consonants of the two joined prefix components. For example, tetrzon becomes tetrazon. The letter -y- is not treated as a consonant for this procedure.

It is expected that a nomenclature of prefixes representing powers of the base would only be used in a technical context, for example, in science or technology.

Words for numbers of dozenal characters that are not multiples of four may be specified by multiplying these technical terms by ordinary words in local natural languages for twelve raised to smaller powers, such as the words twelve or dozen for the first power of twelve in English.

It is thought not to be courteous to use special terms for all possible powers of twelve, just as in the decimal metric system of prefixes only powers of a thousand have special prefixes, with the exception of terms for ten raised to integer exponents closer to zero. This is because when units of measurement have different numerical prefixes, they have different orders of magnitude which need to be converted to be the same in order to be used in calculations. If the number of different orders of magnitude be limited or restricted, the chance of requirement for the additional complexity from adjustment for order of magnitude in calculations is reduced. Also, in natural languages, orders of magnitude are formed by multiplication of terms for powers of the base closer to one rather than having a new term for every possible power.
