POS[edit]

Is million really a number? I think that the number is one million (two millions, etc) and million is just a noun. When we say "millions of ... people/cats/questions ..." aren't we using it as a noun? --flyax 08:39, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

OED calls this a "countable determiner"! Also see The Integration of Million Into the English System of Number Words: A Diachronic Study, by Donald Sims MacQueen. DCDuring TALK 15:48, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
