This is an adaptation of the Duodecimal Myriad System nomenclature system proposed by Takeshi, 1st March 2019, http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~dd6t-sg/univunit-e/revised.pdf.

It copies the multiplicative principle of natural language ordinarily used by the common majority whereby indices or exponents are not stated explicitly while powers are attained as the products of terms for smaller powers of the base. The words dozen and gross already in English for powers of twelve are retained.

Components of new words for powers are derived from Greek. Greek is preferred over Latin because of the greater presence of Greek in mathematical terminology and contributions of Greeks to mathematics.

A new word mylliad is introduced for the fourth power of twelve. It is derived from the Greek word myriad for ten thousand or the fourth power of ten, as well as the word million from English for 1,000,000. Also it evokes the word mile. The fourth power of twelve so happens to be about twice ten thousand.

The my- syllable is back-formed as a multiplicative prefix meaning times one through the first syllable of Greek mono. This is followed by the suffix -lliad, which means a group of four numerical positions. Dozenal numerical characters are grouped in fours, and the number of these groups of four is indicated by a prefix derived from the Greek cardinal or counting numbers. Thus, twelve to the power of twice four has the prefix dy- from the Greek for two.

The eleventh prefix, enkomi-, is invented from contraction of Greek meaning "one yet", where the "komi" part is related etymologically through Indo-European roots to English "to come". This is analogous to the Greek deka for ten meaning "two to come" before the base twelve. Enkomi has three syllables, but so does eleven.

For the twelfth prefix, the translation of dozen into Greek as ntouzina may be used. Alternatively, a highly contracted form giving zilliad may be preferred. This sounds familiar to English from zillion.

Prefixes for powers higher than twelve times four may be obtained by concatenation of the monosyllabic prefixes, so that dyzilliad would mean twelve to the power of a double dozen.
