Interested in Language
I want to write the phrase "all previous week 7". What is the correct plural form of "week 7"? "week 7s", "weeks 7"? Or is it wrong to use a plural form of this noun.
My guess is that you want to say something like, "In week 7 in previous years, ..."
If each year is broken down into individual weeks and you wish to refer to each "Week Seven" which has occurred, the I don't see why you shouldn't say something like:
"If we look at all the Week Sevens since the company started operating..."
However, as 5jj said, without context, it's hard to know whether or not attempting to pluralise "week 7" is appropriate.
