According to Google, kilometer is 5 times more common than kilometre. Is there an official standard for the spelling in English? 1. One is the UK spelling, (-tre) the other is the US spelling (-ter). Like Centre vs Center, Colour vs Color, etc. So then, what's the standard spelling for Wikipedia? I've always assumed that it's American English, since there are more Americans and the site is based in America and whatnot. However, why are bot users going around and changing everything to UK English spelling? Is there any justification for that besides the pain that English people have without their beloved colours and centres and whatnot? I'd like to know what the Wiki standard is before these changes go any further. Or farther. Or whatever. --Carl04:14, 12 Jul 2004 (UTC) 1. Here is the policy you are after. For as long as you Americans keep the silly Imperial units, you have to live with our way of spelling SI units. :-) — Danc14:17, 14 Jul 2004 (UTC) 1. 1.1. There is no official spel...
I've often heard people (and myself) use "K's" (pronounced 'kays') as a slang term for kilometres. ie "Town is 20 k's down the road" . Do people think this warrants adding as a slang term along with clicks (which I've only seen used by US soldiers in books or movies)? - SimonLyall00:47, 22 Sep 2004 (UTC) 1. It is only spelled or also written. IMHO non useful, to me is not enciclopedicAnyFile 21:55, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC) 1.1. Hi, sorry I don't quite understand what you mean by "only spelled or also written". Saying "kays" is very common in speech and does crop up in writing. Have a look at these google searches: , , . SimonLyall 22:59, 29 Jan 2005 (UTC) 1.1.1. I was asking if it is used in writing AnyFile 20:46, 30 Jan 2005 (UTC) 22.214.171.124. Yes it is, see the google links. Some of the usage are in articles rather than just quotes from diologue. Authors are from Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand. Kays is a normal term in english speaking metric countries. SimonLyall 02:09, 31 Jan...
I pronounce "kilometre" with the stress on the first syllable, and so do a significant minority (though admittedly it is a minority) of people I know. Is there a prescribed "correct" pronunciation? The section about this in the article itself seems to brook no dissent! Loganberry23:47, 15 May 2005 (UTC) 1. Per dictionary.com I have removed the claim that pronouncing it 'ki-LOM-i-ter' is incorrect. Despite the pronunciation's origins, it is entrenched in the USA (first attested to "before 1830", and preferred by ~70% of the prescriptionist American Heritage Dictionary's usage panel). — Saaber22:22, 10 August 2007 (UTC) Ultimately it doesn't matter as the listener will understand you either way. HOWEVER, pronouncing it with the stress on the first syllable suggests that you understand the metric system, while using the other version implies that you don't. This might be the reason why Americans almost universally insist on mispronouncing the word. I would dispute that the BBC or the s...
Gene Nygaard just reverted some edits of mine about which I'd like some clarification. 1) Surely, stating that it is an SI unit makes sense in the introduction. Just like saying that the other units it is compared to are imperial. One cannot assume something like that is known. Suppose it were compared to, say, Chinese units (I haven't a clue what they use there), then I'd like to know what they are, so I can look it up as a frame of reference. 2) Nothing major, but the word kilometre is indeed often misused to designate kilometre/hour and I suppose that merits a mention, especially since it is wrong. DirkvdM19:25, 13 August 2005 (UTC) 1. I think I tried to make a partial reversion when I was half awake. Some of it needed to be changed, but I didn't get it right either. I have no objection to identifying the kilometer as a metric unit. 2. For some reason I though you had taken out the American spelling, but you hadn't. It was probably the moving of the symbol to place it before the...
Why isn't the abbreviation Km? 1. That is they way it is. A small "k" for Kilo, see SI prefix and Kilo. - SimonLyall11:59, 14 October 2005 (UTC) That's exactly what I was going to ask... Albo NL17:20, 21 January 2007 (UTC) As an aside, the capitalisation of the prefixes is very important in metric, as some prefixes start with the same letter. Take "milli" (a thousandth part) and "mega" (a million times). A mm is a millimetre - a thousandth of a metre, whereas a Mm is a megametre - a million metres. Big difference dependent on the capitalisation of the M, eh?? Only out by a factor of 1,000,000,000 if you get the M and m swapped! TheBustopher (talk) 00:03, 20 October 2011 (UTC)
I've pulled this page back from Kilometer to reconnect its history and because the move was inappropriate in the first place. Refer to the Wikipedia Manual of Style. --ToobMug21:49, 6 March 2006 (UTC)
"The USA is gradually kilometerising its road signage". Is it? I hadn't heard. Is this actually the case? KILOMETERISING - what a dreadful word; a classic example of verb misuse. Arcturus22:38, 1 September 2006 (UTC) 1. Hey, like Calvin say, verbing wierds language. —johndburger02:48, 2 September 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Over the past few years I have travelled about 10,000 miles on the US interstate system in the midwest and west of the Mississippi. I do see mi/km signs appearing where roads have been repaired and old signs are replaced with new. I don't know whether it is a decision made by state or nat'l gov't but the km is becoming apparent in the system. MarlaB22:59, 22 February 2007 (UTC)
It states in the article that 1 km equals 0.621 miles. Wouldn't that mean that 1 mile equals 1.610305958 km? In that case there's something wrong because 1 mile = 1.609 km. I know its a small difference, but if you guys calculated all the rest with the wrong numbers, eventually it would add up... Albo NL17:32, 21 January 2007 (UTC) 1. The yard is defined as 0.9144 m. Which makes the mile exactly 1.609344 km. Thus 1 kilometre is about 0.621371192 mi. which you can round off to 0.621 mi. Your error is due to this rounding off. Yes, you're right to point out that these errors would add up. Each time you do a new calculation it's best to go back to the exact figures. Jɪmp04:13, 30 August 2007 (UTC) Do not know if a kilometer equal five-eighths (⅝) of a mile (in fraction form) (.625 mile (in decimal form))? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 08:26, 31 December 2017 (UTC) 1. If you read the article, or the answer above, you'll see that a mile is 1.609344 km, where...
whats the thing one longer then kilometer (if there is one) like meter * 1000 = kilometer kilometer * 1000 = ? 1. 1000 km is 1 Mm (one Megameter). See also SI prefix. — Monedula09:03, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
