Interested in Language
A pretty girl of about eight ran into the room.
(from a book about using articles)
1. Am I right that "about eight" means "she was approximately eight years old" ?
2. Shouldn't "of about eight" have been separated by commas? (A pretty girl, of about eight, ran into the room.)
