#Concerning age, we say: "He's in his twenties", or "She's in her teens/late teens/early teens" and so forth. Does it apply to days of a month too?
When planning, can we say:
"Let's look at the thoes days in the twenties."?! meaning looking at the last 10 days of the month. Likewise, can we say:
"How about those in the teens?" --the 2nd 10 days of the month?
You could, if you had a calendar and you were making specific reference, NT, but we don't do it like it appears you do in Chinese.
And what [how] do you call the first 10 days? Is there a name for it?
Not that readily comes to mind.
Do native speakers group days of a month this way like we do in Chinese? Thanks, all help would be most appreciated.
