I just used the word “bazillion” in a post, and noticed the spell checker didn’t object. So naturally, I decided to Wiki it. Here’s the good part:
“Imaginary words ending in the sound “-illion”, such as zillion and bazillion, are often used as fictitious names for an unspecified, large number, by analogy to names of large numbers such as billion and trillion. Their size is dependent upon the context, but can typically be considered large enough to be unfathomable by the average human mind.”
Heh heh heh. As a word nerd, I just love that.
