I say "twenty-ten". I tried getting the phrase "two aught one aught" going but the goggled-eyed wtf stares got to be too much to bear.

Oh it's definitely twenty ten for me, but the others were always two thousand whatever.

Thumper said...

Grammatically, it's twenty-ten. Think about it...No one said "one thousand nine hundred ninety nine." It was nineteen ninety nine. 2001 was, technically, twenty-aught-one, but that sounded too prissy so most of us just said "two thousand one." So *technically* it's twenty-ten.

Personally, I figure call it however it tumbles out of your mouth. The grammar police aren't gonna taze you for it...

Dr Gno said...

2010 for me. I even write is out that way for dates. Don't ask me why.........

Priscilla said...

I'm still closing out 'ought nine' so I'm not calling it anything at the moment.

Thumper: But the Grammar Police *do* taze broadcasters. They really do. Which is why I'm asking the question. It's looking like I'll be saying "twenty-ten" for the next eleven months.

Dr. Gno: But, how do you pronounce that? Two-zero-one-zero?

Harvey said...

Duece oh ace naught

Why, what do YOU call it?

Andy said...

Priscilla kinda stole my thunder. I came back to say that I "pronounce" it 'twenty-10,' but when I write a check, I still call it 'two thousand nine.' Sigh...

I think most people will say twenty ten because it's shorter on syllables and quicker to say. I'm kind of lazy, so gonna say twenty ten. Unless I have a point to make about the year and want it drawn out. Then I'll say with emphasis, two thousand ten. (dramatic reverb)
