If ya get bored with Latin, try out some Greek.
Monad, dyad, triad, tetrad, pentad, heptad, octad, ennead, decad(e).
Imagine a myriad of banjo players (a Gary Larson vision of hell). An ennead
does indeed conjure up an ensemble of diaphanously attired nymphs and naked
satyrs making beautiful music together.
