    14 plus/16 plus etc

    Which is the proper word for the "10/14/16 plus" (in TV programs, films etc.)? Is it a mark? A sign? How can I use it in a sentence?

    Can one say: This game has a "16 plus" mark on it.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: 14 plus/16 plus etc

    We don't have such assignations in the UK so it's hard to know. Does it actually say "10 plus" or does it say "10+" or similar? Either way, I would say it aloud as either "Ten plus" or "Ten and over".

    For a similar example, in the UK we have the "18" symbol on computer games etc. I would word that as "This game is suitable for over 18s only".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
