Month. n. s. [monað, Saxon.] A space of time either measured by the sun or moon: the lunar month is the time between the change and change, or the time in which the moon comes to the same point: the solar month is the time in which the sun passes through a sign of the zodiack: the calendar months, by which we reckon time, are unequally of thirty or one-and-thirty days, except February, which is of twenty-eight; and in leap year of twenty-nine.
Till the expiration of your month,
Sojourn with my sister. Shakesp. King Lear.
From a month old even unto five years old. Lev. xxvii. 6.
Months are not only lunary, and measured by the moon, but also solary, and determined by the motion of the sun, in thirty degrees of the ecliptick. Brown's Vulgar Errours, b. iv.
As many months as I sustain'd her hate,
So many years is she condemn'd by fate
To daily death. Dryden's Theo. and Honoria.
