[1] Though the rules for proper use of metric prefixes to construct arbitrary (metric) units of measure are well established, the legitimacy of such words in word games is not entirely clear as many legitimate combinations are not listed in official word lists. Metric prefixes are (in order from large to small): yotta zetta, exa, peta, tera, giga, mega, kilo, hecto, deca, deci, centi, milli, micro, nano, pico, femto, atto, zepto, yocto.
