So tetradecimal users would probably have c months of just over 20 days each (maybe 22 and 23, as in the Gregorian calendar) in a year, which would seem to cry out for 7-day weeks even more than in decimal. Then each day would have 1a hours of 60 minutes of 60 seconds, which would be subdivided tetradecimally into "milliseconds" and "microseconds" (we need a Systematic Tetradecimal Nomenclature now).
A long time ago, I proposed the roots "zen", "cist", "frat", "gim" for the first few transdozenal IUPAC roots. At least "zen" has a rational idea behind it: it is the second syllable of "dozen", already proposed by Pendlebury. I don’t remember what I derived the others from, but what I am aware of is that their initial consonants fill in the gaps left by the previous roots in alphabetical order.
After Kodegadulo’s "des", a decimal base marker that replaces the coda of the SDN root "dec" with an "s", "os" for octal was derived from "oct", first by you, and then independently by me. Doing the same process to "frat" would make the tetradecimal base marker "fras".
So "trifrasciaseconds" and "hexfrasciaseconds", maybe?
The tetradecimal Primel analogue would divide the day into 14
^{5} timels of 160.647 milliseconds, or a sixteenth note at 93 BPM.
The velocitel would come out to about 1.57396 m/s, 5.66624 km/h or 3.52084 mi/h, a comfortable walking speed.
The lengthel would be about 252.852 millimetres or 9.95480 inches, something that could pass for both a longish Continental palm (the length of the hand), and a shortish foot. The trifrasqualengthel is 693.825 metres, or 0.431123 miles. The bifrascialengthel is 1.29006 millimetres.
The areanel is a square lengthel: 63934 mm² or 99.0980 in².
The volumel is 16.1658 litres or 4.27056 US gallons, a little smaller than the 5-gallon jugs that water is commonly sold in. A trifrasciavolumel is 5.89134 millilitres, barely larger than a teaspoon.
The massel would be about 16.1654 kilograms or 35.6386 pounds. This is a bit large, but not entirely inconvenient. It’s about the same as the mass of an average 4-year-old child, or a quarter of the average adult’s mass. An unfrasciamassel is 1.15467 kilograms (2.54561 pounds), and a bifrasciamassel is 82.476 grams (2.90927 ounces).
The forcel is the weight of 1 massel subject to Earth’s gravity: 158.382 newtons.
The pressurel is 2477.27 pascals, or 0.359297 psi. Atmospheric pressure in tetradecimal Primel would be 2c.c8
_{{e}} pressurels.
The energel is 40.0471 joules, and the powerel is 249.485 watts or 0.334298 horsepower.
It all seems usable, I think. The size of the base units reminds me of TGM. Now for Kodegadulo to furnish this system with a good brand-symbol...
