Usage notes[edit]

As with other numbers ending in -jard (with the exception of miljard, 109), this number is disputed, as several authorities[1][2] claim that it "is not numeral" and "there is no name for thousand billions [e.g. 1015] in Swedish", respectively. However, the linguist Allan Ellegård claimed in[3] in 1980 the opposite.
