Example: "100 miles" = "100 M-I-L-E" or "100 M-I-L-E-S."
Note: While we almost never see "inches" spelled with the "es," we do often see the "s" used with "miles."
Note: I've seen a number of people (mostly young) use the sign "ODOMETER" (right index finger circling left index finger) to mean "miles."
