February : Java Glossary

*0-9ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ (all)

February
The second month of the Gregorian calendar. Note the r. Most North American speakers, even professional announcers, are under the delusion it is silent. To a Canadian ear, it makes them sound like children when they drop it. In java.util.Date and java.util.GregorianCalendar February is month 1 and January is month 0. No other word has a silent r, why February?
