*: Am I the only one left in the world today who understands that this word is an abbreviation? The full word is "UNTIL". The word TILL means to turn the earth, as in till the soil; a TILL casn also be a cash-drawer - as in "put he money in the TILL, Granville". The word UNTIL is abbreviated by using an apostrophe, as 'til.
