Number of occurrences

From Teflpedia

The number of occurrences of an event is a circumstance that consists of the number of times that event occurs.

For example, Sandy went on holiday to Spain in 2017, 2019 and 2021. All her other holidays have been to different countries. So with reference to the event "going on holiday to Spain", we can say, Sandy has been on holiday to Spain three times.

In English, the number of occurrences of an event is typically expressed using a numeral adverbial, including numeral adverbs (once, twice, etc).

This provides the numerator part of the fraction that is for frequency.

The wh- phrase for number of occurrences is how many times.
