U.K. English has one significant // * difference from U.S. English: the names for values of 1,000,000,000 // * and higher. In American English, each successive "-illion" is 1,000 // * times greater than the preceding one: 1,000,000,000 is "one billion" // * and 1,000,000,000,000 is "one trillion." In British English, each // * successive "-illion" is one million times greater than the one before: // * "one billion" is 1,000,000,000,000 (or what Americans would call a // * "trillion"), and "one trillion" is 1,000,000,000,000,000,000. // * 1,000,000,000 in British English is "one thousand million." (This // * value is sometimes called a "milliard," but this word seems to have // * fallen into disuse.) // Could someone please correct me if I'm wrong about "milliard" falling // into disuse, or have missed any other details of how large numbers // are rendered. Also, could someone please provide me with information // on which other English-speaking countries use which system? Right now, // I'm assuming that the U.S. system is used in Canada and that all the // other English-speaking countries follow the British system. Can // someone out there confirm this?
