Why is it "five minutes and twenty" as opposed to "five and twenty minutes"?

Five and twenty past is the same as twenty five past

Have a look at the course notes to see how the traditional 20-based number system works. It is still used for telling the time.

  • pum munud ar hugain is the traditional version of dau ddeg pum munud
