Measurement

Been thinking about measurement... I find it interesting that we have a common language (whether it be metres or feet), and that we can measure to incredibly large distances (with a high degree of accuracy) and incredibly small ones (to a high degree of accuracy).

But... is there a limit, particularly in regard to the smaller distances, to which we can measure?

I know there is a discussion to be had as to whether there is a paucity of language and comprehension as to whether we can understand what these sort of small distances really mean.

I also know there is a theoretical limit - but why should there be? Is this a result of a pixellated universe?
