At the NaNo kick-off meet yesterday I was talking about the perceived sex of words (in this case, numbers), and looking at the few results in my notebook - enough for what I needed but also enough to pique my curiosity - I thought it'd be interesting to do it here too. I'd like to see if there's any particular pattern or consensus.

Basically, the point is to look at each of the numbers (one to nine) and decide which sex you think each one is, and vote accordingly.

Comments are closed, you don't need to explain your choice, it's just for (as I say) my own personal curiosity and, perhaps, a little to do with part of my NaNo.

Please give it a little thought and vote!
