Are there any numbers beginning with the letter L?
The larger the better if there are actually any/enough to have a choice

Not just numbers like four and sixty, but also numbers like a Googleplex, dozen, etc.


are there any?

Don't think there are any. Although there a range of very strangely worded names for very large numbers which nobody really knows...

Google is your friend.

L=50 is a bit obvious though... It's not a word by any stretch of the imagination either.

If you are going to include those words, then try lots .

You could have collective nouns like leap (of leopards), litter etc.

Lakh, 100,000, in India.

Lustrum, five years.

Long dozen, thirteen, or baker's dozen.

Ok Deja Vu. Has some pissy mod been ******* with the thread? I swear when I looked this morning, someone had said 'Leven'. I was about to say someone's said that already but when I looked up... nothing :|

Am I going crazy..?

No idea lol. As soon as I read the post I came up with my rather unoriginal response, so I've only been around in the last 15 minutes.

Ah, I thought I was so witty! I'll go back to thinking of other slightly amusing possibilities of numbers beginning with L. :tongue:

They may as well be; the log and natural log of a very big number is a number.
