Linguistic Note on Denominator

The term denominator derives from the word denomination which, in this context, means grouping of elements of the same kind.

Thus, in the fraction $\dfrac 3 4$, it states that the objects of the same kind in question (of which the numerator specifies that there are $3$) are quarters.
