Date: Fri, 28 Oct 1994 08:56:16 EDT From: DONNIE J GRAYSON Subject: forty-twelve In response to an earlier message about 'forty-eleven," I have heard the usage of the phrase 'forty-twelve.' In a numbering sequence, 1 would mean alone, 2 a couple, 3 a few, 4-to-12 a many, and then from 13-to 19 the teens In my hearing of the term 'forty-twelve' it means any number of things, peo- ple, etc. numbering between four and twelve. e-mail adress: djgray02[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
