How would you translate "a teenager", a person of age between 10 and 19?

>> No.1188  

Technically, a teen-ager is someone between the ages of thir-teen and nine-teen :)

I'd probably change "teenager" to "young adult", and then translate that literally. So, "citno makcu", or "citma'u".

I see. But my idea was to be able to express a numerical range succinctly (i.e. without bi'i/bi'o). Another example are "1990s" and "a man in his fifties". I guess I can put it as "lo nanmu be fi'o nilsau li 50 bi'i 59" or "lo nanmu pe li 50 bi'i 59", but I find them wordy and too explicit.

Hmm. Maybe "lo pavdekna'a", "a one decader"? "1990s" could be "la 199moi dekna'atei", "The 199th Decade", and "a man in his fifties" could be "lo nanmu poi mumdekna'a".
