# Numeral formatting

Joined: May 24th, 2017, 8:53 pm
I was doing some work on numerals formatting in Meduviki (module link) and the only source I found on that is Vojtech's web page:

Is the prescribed style intended to be like this? Not one of Slavic languages uses dot ("točku") as a digit separator, so I'm interested in why this was picked here.

Also, if you spot any other errors in the module (for example, I didn't get if I need to have declension for N4, NN4 etc. like for 4, "84 domy", for example), please feel free to point out.

> Decimal numbers have točka (decimal point). This word originally means any point and is declined by the feminine noun pattern ena (woman), but in decimal numbers it has always the same form točka.
> example: 3.14 = tri točka četyrinadset.

The Slovjansky rules for separating thousands and decimals are exactly the opposite to the English rules. Thousands are separated by a period, decimals, by a comma:
123.456,78
3,14 = tri i trnasť desetyh

Cool, interested to know why Vojtech chose that format then. Thanks.

I have no idea why Vojta put it that way, but I agree that there is no reason at all why Interslavic should use the English system with decimal dot.

The decimal dot has a good reason - it's used online. This is because JavaScript uses it this way.

In a lot of websites, if you input dot as a separator, it will treat it as a decimal.
