No. That would be like saying "I'm going to take a ten-minutes coffee break." which, obviously, isn't correct. Try this previous post regarding weeks'/weeks, OFD.We’ll be away for two weeks because we’ll have a ___________.
A. two-weeks holiday
B. two weeks’ holidays
C. two-week holiday
D. two-weeks’ holiday
The answer is C. Is D correct?
Many thanks in advance.
Those are OK exactly as they are if you use them like this:what about
twenty minutes' walk
two weeks’ work
I think it is correct because everything after the preposition ‘of’ is part of an adjective clause. It explains what kind of holiday we are talking about: one ‘of four weeks with holiday pay’. I'd say neither the legal context nor the use of ‘annual’ have anything to do with.I have found the following in a legal text: " ...becomes entitled to an annual holiday of four weeks on holiday pay"
I wonder if it is correct because of the legal context or because of the adjective annual.
Would it be more common "four-week paid holiday" or "a paid holiday of two weeks"?
Thank you very much.
