Kay, you're right. Eight sevenths is a real stretch. But it's better then 14. The English language is funny and full of double meanings. Adding a "th" to certain written numbers can mean a fraction or a series string. So we now have one seventh of a son, poor fellow. But frankly I don't give a damn.

Erm, in my understanding 8/7 clearly is a fraction, but not 8/week(th).


Best regards!

Say I would have chosen I can't drive 55 by Sammy Hagar. Who could argue with that?

"a Seventh Son": to think all these years I thought it referred to an arm or a leg!

Likewise, in English, biennial can mean every 2 years or twice a year.
Without double meanings and such, more than half of the entries would have been "half".
