Minim means 1. the least quantity of anything, 2. the smallest unit of liquid measure, 1/60 of a fluid dram, roughly equivalent to one drop, 3. a musical note, formerly the shortest in use, but now equivalent in time value to one half of a semibreve; half note, 4. something very small or insignificant.

That’s the present value of the additional money that a full class of students can expect to earn over their careers.
It makes me wish I had gone to kindergarten; I think the closest kindergarten to us was in the next county.
