That's a funny word irene Autumnal!

Comment by: Mick on 6th October 2014 at 22:14

ann21 have you tried looking over the little lane railway bridge, because that all I did.

Comment by: irene roberts on 7th October 2014 at 10:58

Why, Garry? Autumnal is a perfectly ordinary word.

Comment by: Maureen on 7th October 2014 at 12:19

Garry,look it up in the dictionary..if you have one.

Comment by: Garry on 7th October 2014 at 18:42

Why not just put Autumn, it's used much more than Autumnal. By the way, its not Autumn yet!

Garry, according to the Canadian Calendar, Fall (Autumn on your side of the Atlantic) begins on September 21st

Comment by: Steve on 7th October 2014 at 20:54

Correct Ellen September 21st. Season of mists and mellow fruifulness.

September, October and November are Autumn; December, January and February are Winter; March, April and May are Spring; June, July and August are Summer. "Autumnal" is a verb that describes the Autumn days, that is all, and it IS Autumn as we speak. I could understand it if I was trying to be posh, but Autumnal is an ordinary, everyday word.

Comment by: Kenee on 8th October 2014 at 09:47

Autumnal is an adjective, as is Wintery or Summery...

but Springy - is an entirely different meaning!

Comment by: irene roberts on 8th October 2014 at 12:15

I meant an adjective, Kenee, not a verb. I was so incensed at the criticism of a perfectly ordinary and acceptable word that I wasn't thinking straight. Thanks.

Comment by: Alan H on 8th October 2014 at 13:58

Kenee, the adjective that refers to things in Spring is Vernal eg, Vernal equinox, the day that day and night are the same length.

Comment by: Neil Cain on 8th October 2014 at 14:08

autumnal is widely used adjective. Don't let others' ignorance throw you Irene.

Comment by: irene roberts on 8th October 2014 at 18:33

Thanks, Neil.

Comment by: Kenee on 8th October 2014 at 19:07

Thank you Alan for adding to that.

In North America the Autumnal equinox is known as the Fall equinox. The 'Spring equinox' is just that. We don't say Wintery solstice though.
