How many different ways can ‘0′ be said?

In English at least 5. First of all, it can simply be called ‘zero’. In telephone numbers, however, it will be ‘oh’ ( or ‘o’, like the letter). When reading a decimal, you’ll say ‘nought’ (0.25 e.g. should be read as ‘nought point two five’). The thing changes when it comes to sport results: in football ‘0′ is read as ‘nil’ (2-0 e.g. is ‘two nil’), in tennis, what’s a big surprise to many, it is ‘love’. In some branches of mathematics ‘0′ is ‘null’ (like in German).
