TWENTY NINE is the only number written with as many strokes (neat, legible manuscript) as its numerical value.

To me TWENTYNINE has only 15 strokes. I write Y and E with two strokes and W and N with one.

On that basis, surely one could argue whether or not what you write actually 'says' TWENTYNINE? ;)

Just wondering whether Ws and Ns written with 1 stroke can actually be clearly read as W and N.
But it really doesn't matter - let's just go with the Bananaman post.

By “stroke” I mean a single continuous movement of the pen without lifting it off the paper or going back over your path. You can certainly write W and N this way (you just pause a little to change direction at the corners, that’s all).

Anyhoo …

Haydn’s Symphony No.31, nicknamed “Hornsignal”, and Mozart’s Symphony No.31, nicknamed “Paris”, are both in the key of D major.
