Recommended Posts

Around 2001 time there was a bit of controversy amongst history purists about how people chose to pronounce the date, with some saying that it should be similar to how we would pronounce the years 1701, 1801, 1901. However there was a general concensus that 2001 was a bit of a special number so was pronounced differently. This trend has obviously continued for the past 9 years, but with the new decade coming up are we going to change back, or do we continue with the current pattern of pronunciation?

Twenty-ten.

 

Next.

Twenty Ten.

 

Twenty Twelve is pretty much marketed as such now with the Olympics, and every World Cup year will be twenty xx

 

Twenty 11 sounds daft though, so maybe 2000 and 'odd' and twenty 'even' is the way forward

Because it makes you sound like a twat? :razz:

 

Nah - unsurprisingly Andy, you're just fucking wrong on this. Saying "Two thousand and ten" is daft. How often did you hear folk going round saying "One thousand nine hundred and ninety six"?

Fuck you and fuck you're argument. Twenty Ten sounds wank.
