3V0747.03 Number/temporal names (2/8/80)

Miriam tells me she has asked Peggy the time and Peggy responded
“eleven.” The answer was not correct but was significant as a number
name. Peggy may have been imitating a specific response heard from
some one else in response to the same question.

Miriam asked again of Peggy, in my hearing, the time. Peggy responded
“Eleventeen.” This is clearly a made up number name from appropriate
kinds of elements.m
