Phrase odd
Text In this podcast, the word "odd" means unusual, strange, or uncommon: "Jacques has an odd habit of touching his elbows when he is nervous or worried." When talking about mathematics, an "odd" number is a whole number that is not a whole-number multiple of two: "The students are learning to recite the odd numbers: one, three, five, seven, nine...." The phrase "-odd," when following a number, means a little bit more than that number: "He worked as a veterinarian for 15-odd years before deciding to become a travel writer." Finally, the phrase "odd jobs" refers to many small, unrelated jobs or tasks that need to be done but aren't very important or noteworthy: "Could you please help me with some odd jobs around the house this weekend?"
