i think its bc it makes ppl sound funny so like they dont say onety-one that way. what about the other numbers tho? onety-two, onety-three. they would have to do the same thing with those if they did onety-one. or thats what i think

Cause stupid English must go after that other language. Oh, yeah, Latin.

Twoty-two, threety-three... I'm guessing because it sounds messed up.
