Height can alternatively be written as "five feet, six inches," "five foot six," and so on. If you're writing anything incredibly short, like "five-six," a hyphen will come in handy. You may also use a quote mark to write it out. For example, "he said 'I'm five-six.'"
If you need to refer to someone who is very tall, then you should use a figure of speech called an epithet. These are words or phrases used to describe someone who is extremely good or bad. Some common examples include great, powerful, more than six feet tall, little man, skinny, thin, short, small, weak, and so on.
When writing about someone who is very tall, it is customary to use an epithet to describe them. For example, if I were to write about a person who was six-two, I could say that he was a giant or that she was tiny. Or I could just as easily call him or her "a tall person."
Tall people have always been the subject of stories. In fact, there are several myths and legends surrounding giants.
Help! A. A hyphen is usually superfluous; write "five feet and two inches tall," "five feet and two inches," "five foot two," and so on. A hyphen, on the other hand, is useful in formulations like "five-two." There is no space following the sign for feet if you write "5'2". (a prime symbol).
B. If you are writing in words instead of numbers, most writers leave a space after the number but not after the height measurement. So, you would write "he is five feet eight inches tall" or perhaps "he is 5'8" tall.
C. If you are writing in numbers only, there is no need to include any punctuation marks beside them. So, you could write "5'8".
D. If you are writing in words and numbers together, a hyphen is necessary between the number and the height measurement. So, you would write "he is 5-2.".
B. If you're writing in words instead of numbers, write out the full name followed by the abbreviation. So, you would say "Rachel Tallridge" or "Rachel Tallridge-Mason." Abbreviations are often used in business communications and others situations where space is limited.
C. If you want to be able to write more than one name in a row without breaking the line, start each new name with an upper case letter. So, you could say "Rachel Tallridge-Mason Brian Smith-Davis" or even just "Rachel Tallridge Mason Brian Smith Davis".
D. If the person named includes titles or positions, use proper nouns. So, you would say "Lady Rachel Tallridge-Mason" or "The Lord Brian Smith-Davis".
E. If the person has more than one title or position, include them within the name itself. So, you would say "Princess Rachel Tallridge-Mason" or "Professor Brian Smith-Davis".
Inches is spelled as in "or." 3'6" would be 3'6" for 3'6" for 3'6" for 3'6" for 3'6" for ".. 3 ft 6 in is most commonly written as 42 in or 3.5 ft. In the United States, the usual sign for feet is the apostrophe (""), whereas the quotation is often used for inches " (").
Feet is spelled as in "a foot". 12 feet long is most commonly written as 12' long. Foot is also sometimes written as foot when referring to a part of a human body: one foot. In this case, it should be spelt with an s.
Abbreviations such as in. , cm. , dm. , mm., and pc. Are usually left out unless they are part of some other measurement. For example, if you say that something is five feet tall, then that means that it is five feet high. But if you say that it is five feet two inches tall, then that means that it is five feet two inches high. Abbreviations are generally not included in quotes.
