I came across an odd-looking usage in the paper today...
The wife of President Assad listens to her husband yesterday with her two younger children
The sentence suggests that she has some other children somewhere, as otherwise it would just have referred to "her children". But if there are three or more children, ought not the two on show be the youngest? But the youngest should only be one child; more than one can't be the youngest? Or are they younger because they are a group, and there may only be one other?
Can anyone help me out with this?
