### Aughts is a Dumb Name for the Decade

It seems like the entire world is so not looking at the complexities of finding a word for this decade. The term aughts means zero. These fools are looking into one factor about this decade, the zeros that are in the abbreviated decade version of 00s. They are attempting to create a word from Old English to create a word that represents zeros. Aught means zero or nothing! That is the definition of aught, I didn't make it up.

However, you may use any of the words that means zeros like nil, nada, aught, nuaght, ought, zilch, nothings and ect. Fill in the blank and you get the same purpose for the name.

This is not a correct way to create the pronunciation for 00s. It goes beyond the simple zeros in the abbreviation of 00s.

This need for a word is all about finding a term that means the counting numbers between 0 and 9 only. Currently, there is a missing word for the numbers between 0 and 9.

Through my recent studies we don't have a word that represents the 10 (originally nine) different glyphs in the Hindu-Arabic numeral system in a form similar to twenties, thirties, forties, fifties, sixties, seventies, eighties, and nineties.

The Hindu-Arabic numeral system is a positional decimal numeral system developed by the 9th century (the earliest known description is Al-Khwarizmi's, dating to ca. 825) and spread to the western world through Arabic mathematicians by the High Middle Ages. Yes, the glyphs and symbols we are referring to are the digits: 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9.

So the rest of the world refers to these numbers as the single digits.

Double digit numbers 10 through 99 uses a combination of these glyphs. Triple digit numbers 100 to 999 uses another combination of these glyphs. We can go on and on but the point we are making is that the numbers between 0 and 9 have no word that means the complete set of this numbers.

The numbers between 0 and 9 have one common factor - they are all one digit. In Latin, there is a word or prefix, from mathematics that means one, uni.

The glyph or symbol 0 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 1 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 2 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 3 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 4 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 5 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 6 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 7 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 8 is only one (uni) digit.

The glyph or symbol 9 is only one (uni) digit.

If we took all the one digit numbers between 0 and 9 then they are one-digits, single-digits, and uni-digits. Or simply the Unies. The term unies is derived from Latin and means the numbers between 0 and 9.

Aughts means zero and if you have a bunch of zeros you still have nada.
