  • Interesting fact: There are more than 50 different types of pumpkins. Some of them have names such as Munchkin, Funny Face, and Spooktacular
    • such Of that kind; of the like kind or degree; like; similar. Such always implies from its sense a comparison with another thing, either unexpressed, as being involved in the context (as, we have never before seen such a sight (sc. as this is); we cannot approve such proceedings (sc. as these are); such men (sc. as he is) are dangerous), or expressed, such being then followed by as or that before the thing which is the subject of comparison (as, we have never had such a time as the present; give your children such precepts as tend to make them wiser and better; the play is not such that I can recommend it). As in such constructions often becomes by ellipsis the apparent subject of the verb of the second clause: as, such persons as are concerned in this matter. It is to be noted that, as with other pronominal adjectives, the indefinite article a or an never immediately precedes such, but is placed between it and the noun to which it refers, or such comes after the noun preceded by the article: as, such a man; such an honor; I never saw a man such as he.
    • such In Middle English such appears in another quasi-adverbial use, preceding a numeral, in the sense of ‘as much,’ or ‘as many’: as, such seven, ‘seven such’—that is, ‘seven times as many.’
    • such Such without the correlative clause with as is often used emphatically, noting a high degree or a very good or very bad kind, the correlative clause being either obvious, as, he did not expect to come to such honor (sc. as he attained), or quite lost from view, as, such a time! he is such a liar!
    • such The same as previously mentioned or specified; not other or different.
    • such Of that class: especially in the phrase as such, ‘in that particular character.’
    • such Some; certain: used to indicate or suggest a person or thing originally specified by a name or designation for winch the speaker, for reasons of brevity, of convenience or reserve, or from forgetfulness, prefers to substitute, or must substitute, a general phrase: often repeated, such or such, or such and such (even with a single subject, but in this case implying repetition of action or selection of instances).
    • such Such a person or thing; more commonly with a plural reference, such persons or things: by ellipsis of the noun.
    • such The same.
