Random information on the term “TWELVE”:

12 (twelve) is the natural number following 11 and preceding 13. Twelve is a superior highly composite number, divisible by 2, 3, 4, and 6.

It is the number of years required for an orbital period of Jupiter. It is central to many systems of timekeeping, including the Western calendar and units of time of day and frequently appears in the world’s major religions.

Twelve is the largest number with a single-syllable name in English. Early Germanic numbers have been theorized to have been non-decimal: evidence includes the unusual phrasing of eleven and twelve, the former use of “hundred” to refer to groups of 120, and the presence of glosses such as “tentywise” or “ten-count” in medieval texts showing that writers could not presume their readers would normally understand them that way. Such uses gradually disappeared with the introduction of Arabic numerals during the 12th-century Renaissance.

Derived from Old English, twelf and tuelf are first attested in the 10th-century Lindisfarne Gospels’ Book of John.[note 1] It has cognates in every Germanic language (e.g. German zwölf), whose Proto-Germanic ancestor has been reconstructed as *twaliƀi…, from *twa (“two”) and suffix *-lif- or *-liƀ- of uncertain meaning. It is sometimes compared with the Lithuanian dvýlika, although -lika is used as the suffix for all numbers from 11 to 19 (analogous to “-teen”). Every other Indo-European language instead uses a form of “two”+”ten”, such as the Latin duōdecim. The usual ordinal form is “twelfth” but “dozenth” or “duodecimal” (from the Latin word) is also used in some contexts, particularly base-12 numeration. Similarly, a group of twelve things is usually a “dozen” but may also be referred to as a “dodecad” or “duodecad”. The adjective referring to a group of twelve is “duodecuple”.
