They hold writers in great respect and there are even awards called 'Siyele' that are given once in 2 years. There are 5 different categories for the awards and they are as follow:
Siyele Fiera: Awarded to the book that 'is outstanding in the plot and is of a type that everyone should read at least once'. This is the most prestigious of the awards.
Siyele Juventia: Awarded to the book that 'gives valuable information about the world for the young and gives them the necessary experience for the future'. This is the second most prestigious award.
Siyele Terimia: Awarded to the book that 'tell information about the ever-changing world and gives valuable information for the posterity'. Books used for education falls in this category.
Siyele Ordinia: Awarded to the book that ' promises to tell the truth at all costs'.
Siyele Rizemia: Awarded to the book that 'brings the creativity of the writer to it's fullest.
And now for more details about the language.
The Khidrael Nidei is written using a script that is basically classified as an abugida in our terms.
The number system in the language is based upon the number 6 that is seen as a sacred number in Cie'leth culture.
Number higher than 6 are expressed as the base number and indicator number combined together with ciaem. For example, the number 7 is expressed as Havor-ciaem-rimae while the number 17 is havor-ciaem-havor. It might sound complex but it's actually simple when you get used to it. Take note that the word ciaem appears only once in the number. It cannot appear twice in numbers with three numerals and so on. It's advisable to keep that in mind. Take note that the number zero is only used with the context of nothing.
Could you please tell me how is name for number 6, 7 , 8, 9, 10?

Again, nothing unique about that. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blend.
