in my opinion a piece has to be less than half of something
it’s always less than half though isn’t it
take a piece of cake = have less than half the cake
the fence was smashed to pieces = more than two pieces otherwise you’d say “split in half”
Reckon a slice is smaller than a half but a half is still a piece
hmmm that could be true but you can also slice something in half
How long is a piece of string? Because that’s the size of piece
Yes, I hadn’t considered that.
Perhaps the verb and the noun of slice have some discrepancies between the two
I respectfully disagree because length encompasses the concept of size but a piece is always a fraction of something
I would say a quarter of something or less as dictated by the heart ‘pieces’ in the Zelda games.
I thought they were 3rds
rich you’re very funny
I would say around ¼ to ⅛. Anything less is a sliver and anything more is a chunk
The Legend of Zelda : Ocarina of Time features 36 heart pieces scattered across Hyrule. It takes four Pieces of Heart to form a full Heart Container
from the internet
what about if the thing is all in one piece?
interesting, I would still consider a third of something to be a piece but I like your definition as it has clarity
fair play to the internet, I admit defeat
Got to agree with you here Bammers
The internet always wins mate.
thanks Ant, it’s one of my better thoughts today
