That is correct according to at least one Common Lisp implementation.
The Common Lisp FORMAT function gives you a way to convert integers to
their English names:

    http://www.lispworks.com/documentation/HyperSpec/Body/22_cba.htm

So,

|CL-USER> (format nil "~r" 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000)

|"ten septendecillion"
