ālū

aaluu

ālū

ālÅ« also has that –Å« suffix, and it means 20 in base 8 or 16 in base 10. The stem āl is derived from an old word for 4, which is only ever found these days in derived words and in old poetry.

The other word for 20 is Ä“nnōr, and while it is rarely used in counting ōrÅ« aþōnne (17), ālÅ« (20), ālÅ« aþān (21), it is used after aþ– as in ōrÅ« aþēnnōr (100 and 20).
