Make one then!
But real language numbers do work in a way like the ones in programming languages.
If I type 7 into Java/C++/C#, that could be a natural, integer or racional number the same way as in English.
in this language In order to make a valid statement with regards to seven,
One would have to specify what one would mean by seven, so i'd have to firstly specify the units that one would be using, wether one would be using cardinal, ordinal, or another types of numbers, [their would be no type free number terms anyway].
Their would also be a number type which would be a type for Abstract numbers.
[reason for edit grammatical correction]
The General it seams that this is basis of a myth about the language being based on programming languages,
In-spite of being a system that applies to all terms in the language and both the number and the term which is being modified by a given number, a more accurate description would be grammatical type.
they count the day in one hundred twenty about twelve minute sections, which is interesting since they use base 60,
