"Merology" was coined by Lee Sallows who also used the base-27 system (see Septemviginaries) in which space = 0, A = 1, B = 2, . . . , Z = 26, so we get: zero = 515,904 one = 11,318 two = 15,216 three = 10,799,546 one hundred = 3,196,540 Joyce = 5,627,966 Andre Joyce = 313,969,444,118,456 zillion = 10,208,693,345 Alternatively the base-36 system (see Sexatrigintaries), an extrapolation of base 16, includes both letters and numbers: ZERO = 46,158 ONE = 1,108 TWO = 1,388 THREE = 1,376,182 JOYCE = 918,926 ZILLION = 2,147,557,151 CP3O = 160,827 R2D2 = 842,546 A base-62 system could logically include both spaces and numbers, upper and lower cases, say with A, . . ., Z = 10, . . . , 35, a, . . ., z = 36, . . ., 61, space = decimal point: zero = 14,695,104 one = 195,278 two = 215,066 three = 823,152,836 Joyce = 292,899,820 Andre Joyce = 159,594,674.29289982 zillion = 3,505,830,076,725 CP3O = 183,285,788 R2D2 = 6,443,352 Any of these can in turn be turned into yet another variation, pnumerology, which evaluates strings of letters, numbers and/or spaces into palindromic numbers like zillion = 102,086,933,454,339,680,201 or 2,147,557,151,517,557,412 or 3,505,830,076,725,276,700,385,053.
