Abstract

Two recent articles in Word Ways have explored various relationships between United States place names and the cardinal numbers: Edward Wolpow's "Cardinal Numbers in Town Names" in the May 1977 issue, and Dmitri Borgmann's "From Zero to Infinity" in the February 1978 one. For earlier wordplay of this type, see also Borgmann's book Beyond Language, in which he lists US towns containing the cardinals from one through twelve.
