And a half
Is it used somewhere in the English speaking community ¨an a half¨ to express time?
For instance... SEE YOU AT NINE AND A HALF or WHAT THE TIME IS IT? ... IT´S ELEVEN AND A HALF ?.
The usual expression is of course half past nine (or nine-thirty) but in other languages, French and Spanish for example, they say the equivalent of "nine and a half". I think I have heard it said by people in a bilingual community such as Gibraltarians, francophone Canadians or Anglo-Argentines, but I cannot remember which.
