    I don't think I was very clear [so unlike me, I know ]

    the calender starts at the beginning, but calenders don't have '0', unlike elapsed time, they start at day one / year one

    that is for practical reasons so all the '0' '1' '2' are together as a decade, otherwise it would somewhat messy for those not used to thinking about it mathematically

    they still have the same number of decades years, except for the very first, which does a 'february' so to speak, and only has 9

    nomenclature

    A decade is always 10 years; there is no other definition. The ordinal "'Twenties" is 2020 to 2029. The cardinal decade of the calendar is 2011 to 2030. Bot are 10 years. So it all boils down to where you are cardinal or ordinal.

    We have to posit handrawn is cardinal rather than print off a handrawn dictionary. It saves more trees.

    February with 28 or 29 days is a different kettle and is a crude adjustment for our Sidereal year not being exactly 365 days.

    yes the decades all have the same number of years sorry, that was a typo.. and the 'february' comment was sorta fliipant, it not then being a real decade

    and yes if it is not 10 years it is not a decade

    cardinal or ordinal, quantitiy or positional [list] .... in the real world there are other ways of defining something than just using mathemetics
