Hi. Can someone help me understand this character?
It looks like as けん it is used as a counter but I can't quite narrow down for what. I first noticed it on a yahoo page where it appeared as 「画像あり（全 1件）」. From there I went to WWWJdict and Yahoo 辞書. One of the examples on Yahoo 辞書 was
先月殺人が2件あったAnd a search on ALE for １件 brought up lots of examples, many of which seem to translate to 'per' but a few look like they're being used as counters. A search for ２件 also brought up lots of hits.
There were two murder cases last month.
Counters still confuse me a bit, but this doesn't seem to fit the usual pattern. What's going on here?? Is 件 just a generic counter when used with a number?
