19 (pronounced n-n-n-n-NEIN!-teen) is a number. It comes after 18, unless counting by twos from zero, in which case you will never reach 19. Nineteen is less than 20 but more than pi. As far as numbers go, nineteen is prime, which means that it's barely legal, so you can derive pleasure from nineteen without fear. Nineteen is less than old enough to buy beer (in the United States), but plenty old enough to be drafted to fight in a war. It should not be confused with nigh tin, as in the phrase:
The tin of the word is nigh!
19 was named after the 19th century, because people noticed that it was being used before the th part of 19th (pronounced n-eye-n-teen-th), so people decided to call it nineteen. However, by the end of the second world war, use of the number fell into decline as the male populations in most countries generally met their use-by-dates before this age. It was not until 1988 that the number 19 made an empahatic return to popularity under the patronage of Morris Minor and the Majors who championed the number in the chorus of their popular hit "Stutter Rap", which became a beloved anthem for supporters of the number 19.
