What is the usual colloquial term for a number with an exponent in English? Is there something similar to *2 times 31* for "2*31"? What would you say if you were casually talking about such a number with another developer while you are both waiting in line to grab a cup of coffee?

In German we say *2 hoch 31*, but all the English forms I know (such as *2 raised to the power of 31* or *the 31st power of 2*) sound a bit too wordy to me. So, I am curious if there is any shorter, crisp term to communicate such a number to another developer in an informal, spoken context.
