    Years, pounds

    Hi guys,

    I read that we say "Three pound note, three year old etc". So why "A girl who is seven years old is equal to-A seven year old girl not seven years old".

    Re: Years, pounds

    I am not a teacher.

    Your question is illogical. You have given examples of exactly the same thing as the supposed problem you are raising.

    'We say three year old...so why a seven year old girl not seven years old?'
