An Academic Look at 637

637 is classified as a type of numeronym, which is a number-based word. Numeronyms can be formed in various ways, such as:
  • Shortening a word by replacing a sequence of letters with the count of those letters (e.g., i18n for "internationalization" and a11y for "accessibility").
  • Combining letters and numbers (e.g, K9 for "canine" and W3 for "World Wide Web").
  • Using numbers to represent letters or words (e.g., 143 or 459 for "I love you," and 5201314 for "I will love you for a lifetime").
Some numeronyms were used long before the digital era. Many of the early numeronyms, like 143 and 637, were written on the envelopes of letters between lovers. They were often a coded message between the sender and the recipient, thought to allow secret expressions of love or passion.
