Kids in kindergarten live in a world of sounds, so that the pronunciation of numbers is important. When they start learning to read and write, the co-ordination of (i) sounds, (ii) words and (iii) numerals is important. We already have the place value system fully in the numerals but not yet in written words and pronunciation. It appears that we can provide for a pronunciation of the integers with the full use of the place value system. The definitions should become an ISO standard, though the notebook and package still are quite simple. This notebook and package provide an implementation for English, German, French, Dutch and Danish.
