COMMENTS

Jasper Mulder, Jan 25 2010, comments that this sequence is illdefined, since there are an infinite number of cardinal numbers that start with a 'd', namely all those powers of 10 named decillion, duodecillion and so on (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_numerals).
However, it would seem then that 'billion' and 'centillion' also precede these, while it is standard (and systematic for this sequence) to refer to such numbers as 'one billion', 'one decillion' etc.  Yasiru Ratnayake, May 03 2012
