# Original Parser

## version 1 by Ron Newcomb

**Chapter - Number Words**

[Not much of a parsing routine: we look through an array of pairs of number

words (single words) and their numeric equivalents.]

To decide which number is (x - an understood word) as digits (this is NumberWord):

if x is listed as a spelled-out number in the language's number list:

decide on the number as digits element.

[ NumberWord o i n;

n = LanguageNumbers-->0;

for (i=1 : i<=n : i=i+2)

if (o == LanguageNumbers-->i) return LanguageNumbers-->(i+1);

return 0;
