    There is no five

    I am giving a number to someone and that person doesn't get it right or hear it correctly. Like the number is 1234 and that person thinks it's 1534. Would it be correct to say "There is no five after one, there is a two?".

    Re: There is no five

    It's possible. I would be far more likely to say "No, it's one two" three four", stressing the word 'two'. I would say "There's no five (after one)" if the person had said 15234 back to me.
