**Vince**, Monday, August 27, 2007 at 3:41pmEh, this is just a term of speech to denote different times. For instance, an hour is 60 minutes right? Well, if you broke it into 4 quarters it would be 15 mins each, so when someone says its "Quarter to", that means its 15 minutes away from being that hour. Example: its 4:45p.m. and you ask what time it is, I would answer its, "Quarter to" assuming you knew that it was at least past 4:00p.m., "half after" would be 30 mins after the current hour, so like half after 5 means 5:30. So its basically like applying mathematic terms to short sayings we use in everyday life to denote the time...
