Where can I find written a definitive British English list of large numbers.


Hi TF Scientist A great Hub, thank you. 10^6: Million. 10^9: Billion. 10^12 Trillion all appear in the Collins dictionary (“a definitive British English list of large numbers up to a Trillion!). I guess one thousand Trillion 10^15 (I think the Americans call it a Quadrillion), and one million trillion 10^18 are acceptable written / valid descriptions? Is there a definitive British English list of large numbers after a Trillion? / Where is it written? Many thanks in advance
