Subject: Re: (Fwd) Re: half past
All humor aside this time. My wife and I represent different parts of
U.S. (n. Florida and n Illinois, respectively). We are both familiar with
half past seven, but would be morelikely to say seven-thirty. Half-past
seems slightly bookish and less normal to me; her feelings are somewhat
the same though more qualified.
