A Word A Week: Four

The word for this week is FOUR
For as long as I can remember, 4 has been my favourite number. But that aside, the number 4 conjures up many associations and interesting facts that I thought might be fun to explore further this week. To start:

• The number 4 is the only one in the English language where the number of letters in its name is equal to the number itself.
• There are 4 human blood groups (A, B, O, AB)
• Did you know that 4 is the universal number for women?

More to come on the number FOUR this week!
