Word Ways


In the August 1975 and February 1976 issues of Word Ways, John Candelaria proposed a very large extension of my number nomenclature described in the November 1968 Word Ways. Although I am in general agreement with the principles he has used to extend the number names, I am much bothered by one aspect: the introduction of the repeated milli- prefix each time the log period of the number increases by a factor of 1000.
