Fourteen, 14, XIV
Happy Sunday! This week I'm thinking about the number fourteen. Merriam Webster defines it as 'a number that is one more than thirteen'. That's it, I kid you not. Other dictionaries (real ones) state it is a cardinal number, ten plus four; equal to seven times two, or six less than twenty; a symbol 14 or XIV; a set of persons or things. A series of 14 books is called a tetradecology.
