More About Number-Names


This article continues my investigations of the logological properties of number-names begun in the February 1980 Word Ways with "Alphabetizing the Integers". Following the practice of Webster's Third New International Dictionary, we consider number-names up to, but not including, one thousand vigintillion. Furthermore, we disregard all 'ands' and specify that no power of ten can stand alone without a modifier: e.g., ONE MILLION, but not MILLION. All calculations reported below have been made with a hand calculator, so it may be worth verifying and extending these results with the aid of a high speed digital computer.
