    It's not only the names between 80 and 90 but also those between 70
    and 79 in France 79 would be 60+19 in Switzerland and possibly also
    some other French speaking parts (Belgium?) it would correspond to 79.
    In proper French their are no names for 70, 80 and 90. In some French
    speaking parts they have at least names for 70 and 90.
