think of the title like "Seven Days" War
I'm not an English major or anything, but if you're counting the days, I think it's "Seven Day War." Seven "Days" War doesn't sound grammatically correct to me.

Sorry, for the stupid question.

are you sure? i was basing it off of the "thirty years' war", "seven years' war", "hundred years' war", etc. maybe with "days" you don't add an s? I hate english. >>

But a single none-the-less! None of that "well that doesn't count" crap. A single, is a single, is a single.

It doesn't count as one of her 50 singles however, as it had no physical release. if it did, crossroad would be the 50th single, not L

Nah... I think those would just be "thirty year war," "seven year war," etc.


Like this:

A) How long have we been in war with Iraq?

----> We have been at war for 10 years. (correct)
----> It has been a ten year war. (correct)
----> It has been a ten years war. (incorrect)

I dunno that's just my take on it.

Yeah, it's like "She is three years old" vs. "She's a three-year old girl." I guess when you put a noun in front of it, it changes?

LMAO English class all over again

Just listened to Seven days war...and i don't like it...
TM NETWORK version is so blah...
i hope ayu will work so hard to re-arrange it, and maybe re-compose it a little bit (i doubt this one) and sing it differently, so the song will be good...

and YAY for ENGLISH CLASS... maybe we need to open a new thread, and discuss a lot of grammar mistake from japanese song... i feel interested with this...

Isn't it because the number works like an adjective here, then it can't be plural?

^ i think it's because they named the war so that the "thirty years" in thirty years' war refers to a specific term, not an adjective. i dunno...
