"Taka" means "high".

I think (though not sure) it is "chi" ... or something like that.

EDIT: Perhaps "yon?"

I'm going by Naruto now ... "Sandaime, Yondaime, Godaime" ... :D

EDIT #2: Yon should be correct: Yonrensei

EDIT #3: I'm going to link to Yahoo! Answers ... seems like it can be "yon" or "shi" depending on the context.

"Four" is "shi" or "yon" ("shi" has a negative connotation for superstitious people), "yon" being wider used, I think.

"Two points" is "niken", not "nikken". It is made up of "ni" and "ken" (in syllables: ni-ke-n). "One point" is made up of "ichi" and "ken", which is contracted to "ikken" (in syllables: i-(tsu)-ke-n, where (tsu) is a small tsu which denotes a stop that is usually transcribed by doubling the next consonant).
