I'm intrigued by that, and it leads to two questions in my mind:

1. Why octante instead of the more French sounding huitante, which would fit in 
the most of the rest of the numbering system?

2. How do they spell out 90? Do they have another new word, or follow the more 
usual French approach with octante-dix?
