- For Teachers
I was always under the impression that in a sentence like "Oh, but that was years ago!", the word "years" signifies a fairly substantial number of years, at the very least more than five.
Then somebody told me that anything two or over could be expressed this way.
I don't know, though, saying "years" when it's only two or three just doesn't sound right to me.
Am I mistaken about this?
