The Misalian seximal system is a system for using base six in English created by jan Misali. He suggests that base six is "objectively the best way to represent numbers".[1] The seximal system introduces several new words for multiples and powers of six.

## Small multiples of six

306 (eighteen) is called "thirsy". 406 (twenty four) is called "foursy". 506 (thirty) is called "fifsy". 1006 (thirty six) is called "nif", a loanword from the Ndom language.

## Smaller powers of six

10006 is called either "six nif" or "tarumba", a loanword from the Kómnzo language..

1 00006, nif squared, is called "unexian".

1 0000 00006 is called "biexian".

1 0000 0000 00006 is called "triexian".

\(6^{4*4}\) is called "quadexian".

\(6^{4*5}\) is called "pentexian".

\(6^{4*10_6}\) is called "unnilexian".

\(6^{4*11_6}\) is called "ununexian".

\(6^{4*12_6}\) is called "umbiexian".

\(6^{4*13_6}\) is called "untriexian".

\(6^{4*14_6}\) is called "unquadexian".

\(6^{4*15_6}\) is called "umpentexian".

\(6^{4*20_6}\) is called "binilexian".

Misali goes on to explain that the syllables nil, un, bi, tri, quad, and pent can be used to represent the digits of a number in base six, and that the -exian suffix means unexian to the power of that number.[2]

## Larger numbers

Outside of the main seximal nomenclature is an extended system of larger numbers,[3] including larger -exian numbers (the largest named being "unnilnilnilnilexian", the unexianth -exian) and the -eciam suffix, which works similarly to -yllion. Repeated nils in an -eciam number can be replaced with the amount of nils represented in base six using a set of Germanic based digits: no, ain, twai, thri, fedru, and fimf. This can continue a few levels deeper with a set of Sanskrit based digits (shunya, eka, dvi, treya, chatur, pancha), a set of Mandarin based digits (ling, yi, er, san, si, wu), a set of Ndom based digits (mer, sas, thef, ithin, thonith, meregh), and a set of Kómnzo based digits (nibo, nabi, eda, etha, asar, tabru). The largest number defined with the -eciam suffix is unainekayisasnabiniboniboeciam, equal to \(6^{2^{6^{6^{6^{6^{6^{100_6}}}}}+1}}\).
