Query:   I would like to know what the exact denotation is of
expressions like

"the first week of April"
"the third week of this year"

in different languages und cultures.

I have heard claims that in the US the "first week"
is the period from the first day of the month until
the following Saturday, whereas in Germany it is
the first full week (Monday to Sunday) of the month.

Please respond to me ( directly, and I
will post a summary of responses to the list.
