const isEmpty = xs => xs.length === 0;
const take = n => xs => xs.slice(0,n);
const drop = n => xs => xs.slice(n);
const reverse = xs => xs.slice(0).reverse();
const comp = f => g => x => f (g (x));
const not = x => !x;
const chunk = n => xs => isEmpty(xs) ? [] : [take(n)(xs), ...chunk (n) (drop (n) (xs))];

// numToWords :: (Number a, String a) => a -> String
let numToWords = n => {
  let a = [
    '', 'one', 'two', 'three', 'four',
    'five', 'six', 'seven', 'eight', 'nine',
    'ten', 'eleven', 'twelve', 'thirteen', 'fourteen',

  // this part is really nasty still
  // it might edit this again later to show how Monoids could fix this up
  let makeGroup = ([ones,tens,huns]) => {
    return [
      num(huns) === 0 ? '' : a[huns] + ' hundred ',
      num(ones) === 0 ? b[tens] : b[tens] && b[tens] + '-' || '',
      a[tens+ones] || a[ones]

  let thousand = (group,i) => group === '' ? group : `${group} ${g[i]}`;
  if (typeof n === 'number')
    return numToWords(String(n));
  else if (n === '0')
    return 'zero';
    return comp (chunk(3)) (reverse) (arr(n))
      .join(' ');

//=> eleven thousand nine

//=> ten million one 

//=> nine hundred eighty-seven

//=> one thousand fifteen

//=> fifty-five billion one hundred eleven million two hundred 
//   twenty-two thousand three hundred thirty-three

//=> nine hundred ninety-nine sextillion nine hundred ninety-nine
//   quintillion nine hundred ninety-nine quadrillion nine hundred
