English[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

kilo ‎(plural kilos)

  1. Short for kilogram.
    • 2013 July 26, Nick Miroff, “Mexico gets a taste for eating insects [ ]”, The Guardian Weekly, volume 189, number 7, page 32: 
      The San Juan market is Mexico City's most famous deli of exotic meats, where an adventurous shopper can hunt down hard-to-find critters [] . But the priciest items in the market aren't the armadillo steaks or even the bluefin tuna. That would be the frozen chicatanas – giant winged ants – at around $500 a kilo.
  2. The letter K in the ICAO spelling alphabet.
