eleven is ystaima

ystaima = eleven (numeral) (Some things Google found for "ystaima": a very rare term; somewhat similar Systema (meaning the System) is a Russian type of martial arts; somewhat similar istana means palace in Indonesian; in English stamina is a somewhat similar word)

Word derivation for "eleven" :
Basque = hamaika
Finnish = yksitoista (yksi means one and -toista means -teen)
Miresua = ystaima (yst means one)

This is a new word. I could only count up to ten in Miresua before. Although there are some words for larger numbers, such as a hundred and a thousand.

The word eleven doesn't occur in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-glass.
