Quattuordecillion is used by the scholarly MathWorld; see, for example the article 'Quattuordecillion' by Eric W Weisstein : . It is also listed at . (For reference, it is also listed in the AHD.) It can also be observed in the conversation here : Instead of starting a new thread for one question, you can post your question in one of the quattuordecillion other threads [...]. It is also used in the article here : One Quattuordecillion Years From Now: Protons and neutrons [will] decay (ooh, scary!). Last, but not least, this article demonstrates that there are individuals who aren't sure of the definition of the word (and I think one quattuordecillion is written: $1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000), and that is where wiktionary and other dictionaries come in handy.

So everything you refer to fails the use/mention distinction, right? These are here only to use Wiktionary as a vehicle to promote this (unusable) silliness. --Connel MacKenzie 18:17, 26 December 2006 (UTC) Re-reading those above, I see the one that doesn't fail the use/mention distinction seems to give the meaning "three" ('quattuordecillion other threads') instead of the definition we currently have. --Connel MacKenzie 18:20, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
I disagree. It is clearly not silly, it is found in many scholarly publications (for example, as I said above, it is found in the American Heritage Dictionary and MathWorld, etc). It is also clearly in use.
The Timeline Cosmic Future, as I stated, uses the word, just as it uses the word million (in, for example, the phrase ‘In 226 million years’, to mean ‘In 226,000,000 years’)
