273

 

I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.

 

 

 

Did you ever wonder how we got our current numbering system?  We’ll examine just one number and that will be number 12 for today’s discussion.  It is from the Old English twelf meaning two left (over 10).  Now aren’t you glad you read this post today?

 

 

 

Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

Word origins can be very interesting....and what the reasons were then as to how they fit into the vernacular of today.

So I guess thirteen is three left over and fourteen is four left over and fifteen is five Barney Fifes left over. See, and you thought I was mathematically challenged.
