I am a high school math teacher with a historical question. Bill Dunham
suggested I ask you. Why in both the Romance and Germanic languages are
eleven and twelve so different from the rest of the teens, and why is
fifteen in the Romance languages different from the rest of the teens?

If you can help, I'd really appreciate it!
