From French litre, Medieval Latin litra, from Ancient Greek λίτρα (lítra, a Sicilian coin, a measure of weight). Related to Latin libra.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

litre (plural litres) (chiefly UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa)

  1. The metric unit of fluid measure, equal to one cubic decimetre. Symbols: l, L,
    You should be able to fill four cups with one litre of water.
  2. (informal) A measure of volume equivalent to a litre.

Usage notesEdit

  • The litre is not an SI unit but is accepted for use with SI units. The official SI symbols are the capital or lower-case roman L. The script symbol , while not officially sanctioned, was sometimes used in non-technical contexts to prevent the lower-case roman l from being confused with 1, the number one.
