How many is several?
We all know that, 2 is a couple, 3 is a few, 6 is half a dozen.
So how many in several? "She had several pairs of socks", how may is that exactly?
And, how many in a handful? Would that be more, or less, than several?
I may be worrying about this too much, bu I feel it's something that should be out in the open and clear to everyone.
