How do/will you pronounce what year it is?
2 thousand and 10, but I am an old fashioned guy.
Two thousand and ten would actually be 2000.10. the 'and' in a number normally signifies the decimal point.
Two thousand ten for me.
Then "four and twenty blackbirds" meant 4.20 blackbirds?
This is not worth a fight, but I was referring to modern English. I also used the word 'normally.'
To each his own, I suppose.
Can we put voice/sound files on here,
I say twenty ten but people look at me funny around here.
Anyone else remember the boondoggle of a "fire prevention" PSA that was wholly dedicated to convincing people to say "Smokey Bear" not "Smokey the Bear"?
I say two thousand ten but at least you are consistent with the way we all said the years in the 1900's.
But "The" is is middle name - as was his fathers :smilewinkgrin:
I guess I usually say 2 thousand ten
