English term or phrase: smoots
Cum l-aţi reda pe smoot la plural? Cum vi se par smooţi şi smuţi?

Mulţumesc anticipat pentru opinii.

"One smoot is equal to Oliver Smoot's height (five feet and seven inches ~1.70 m). The bridge's length was measured to be 364.4 smoots (620.1 m) plus or minus one ear, with the "plus or minus" intended to express uncertainty of measurement.[1] Over the years the "or minus" portion has gone astray in many citations, including the commemorative plaque at the site itself."

Eu nu aş spune smooţi.
Mă tot gândesc la analogii, din păcate nu le am cu unităţile de măsură.
Avem ohm, ohmi; coulomb, coulombi; watt, waţi...
