A six letter word, that when you take out its last letter, becomes half of its meaning.
What word is it?
(In reply to Is it
Why is dozen half of dozens, any more than, say, drink is half of drinks? Dozens could be 60 and dozen is 12, that's 1/5, not 1/2. Plurality doesn't specify how great a plurality, for dozens any more than for any other item.
