Comment #1: String-internal digit
Curtis W Franks (Tue Jun 28 07:12:07 2016)

If this word/digit is used within a string (or maybe even at the beginning
or end), I think that it might take on a function rather similar to
significant figure markers or rounding markers. The only differences that I
see are that 1) it need not be any partocular or consistent form of
approximation throughout multiple uses even in the same context; and 2) it
can be used even in a mathematical context wherein numbers are
exact/particular/actual (even if not correct - for example, rounding
produces an exact/particular but incorrect number which happens to
approximate the exact/particular correct one) in addition to the province
of experimental results, wherein the numbers are understood to really refer
to ranges determined by the number provided.
