I’m about five-six. Light brown hair. Long.


Here is a sentence from a novel. What does five-six mean here? Does it mean the author is 5.6 feet tall or 5 to 6 feet tall?

5 "foot" is colloquial as used here. A "five-foot pole" is not.

5 feet 6 inches, 1.67 metres.

There is no indication of the gender of the speaker.
