When the amount of something is from 101 to 999, you say "hundreds of". When it's from 1001 to 9999, you say "thousnads of". How about when the amount is from 11 to 99? How do you express that in English?

# not hundreds of?

For numbers from 24 to 199 you can say "dozens of".

Note: you wouldn't say "hundreds of" for anything less than 200 (nor thousands for less than 2000).

You can say "tens of", although that's not as popular as "dozen" (multiples of 12).

For multiples of 20, you can say "scores of", as in "Four score and seven years ago..."

For multiples of 20, you can say "scores of", as in "Four score and seven years ago..."

About dozens of, does it imply those things are grouped in dozens (with 12 each)? Or simply implies there are many of them but not so many as hundreds?

About scores of, does it only refer to the number of years or just everything in general?

Dozens have to be grouped in multiples of 12 (3 dozen = 36), and scores have to be in multiples of 20 (four score and 7 years = 87 years). They can apply to anything you can count, not just years. You can have scores of people, donzens of socks, etc. They are used just like you would use pairs or hundreds or millions.

It's ONLY 13 if you say "a baker's dozen".

Conversely, "a banker's dozen" is 11.
