Pronouncing 2010 and subsequent years

.Among experts and the general public, there is a debate as to how specific years of the 21st century should be pronounced in English.^ One of my burning questions – Is there any thing specifically we should look out for or change in our financial strategies as we age?

^ Republicans should remember there is more at stake this year than the presidency.
  • The American Spectator : 2010 10 February 2010 11:33 UTC spectator.org [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

The year 2010 is pronounced either "twenty ten" or "two thousand (and) ten".[1]

Pronouncing 2010 and subsequent years

See also: Year pronunciation
.Among experts and the general public, there is a debate as to how specific years of the 21st century should be pronounced in English.^ One of my burning questions – Is there any thing specifically we should look out for or change in our financial strategies as we age?

.Although the majority of English-speakers say "two thousand (and) X" for any specific year post–1999, it is often suggested that the continuation of this type of pronunciation for the entire 21st century would be inappropriate or unnatural, given the alternative "twenty X" option.^ Virgil Cooper says: January 5th, 2010 at 5:20 pm Hi, Loral, I have your MilMkr book & have been participating in Webinars for two years.

.Academics suggest that since former years such as 1805 and 1905 were commonly pronounced as "eighteen oh" or "nineteen oh" five, the year 2005 should naturally have been pronounced as "twenty oh-five".[1] Many experts agree that majority usage of "two thousand (and) X" is a result of influences from the Y2K hype, as well as the way "2001" was pronounced in the influential 1968 film, 2001: A Space Odyssey.^ It would not be a wise decision and therefore you should avoid any major steps till next year as per Sagittarius love horoscope.
  • Sagittarius 2010 horoscope - 2010 Sagittarius horoscope - Love Horoscope Sagittarius 2010 10 February 2010 11:33 UTC www.indastro.com [Source type: General]

Many people, including linguistic and academic experts, predict that the "twenty X" pronunciation method will eventually prevail, but a timeframe as to when this change will occur often differs. .The year 2010 is suggested by many[2][3], while 2011[1] and 2013 are popular as well.^ I would greatly appreciate any feedback and suggestions you can offer to me, so that 2010 will truly be my turnaround year.

  • Sagittarius 2010 horoscope - 2010 Sagittarius horoscope - Love Horoscope Sagittarius 2010 10 February 2010 11:33 UTC www.indastro.com [Source type: General]

The latest timeframes for change are usually placed at 2020[1] or 2100.
.According to a recent press release, David Crystal, author of the Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language, has predicted that the change of pronunciation to "twenty X" will occur in 2011, as "twenty eleven", explaining that the way people pronounce years depends on rhythm, rather than logic.^ Fall 2009 hairstyles are a very good way to predict what the popular style next year will be.
  • 2010 Hairstyles Pictures - The Latest Trends in 2010 Haircuts for Women - Beautiful Hairstyles 10 February 2010 11:33 UTC www.beautifulhairstyles.com [Source type: General]

^ What can I do to put more money in my pocket rather than be tied to results that depend on others less motovated that me?

.Crystal claims that the rhythm or "flow" of "two thousand (and) ten", beats out that of "twenty ten", but the flow of "twenty eleven" beats out "two thousand (and) eleven".[1] Alternatively, Ian Brookes, editor-in-chief of Chambers Dictionary, suggests the change will occur in 2013.^ What would you suggest for figuring out the BEST way to create cash flow while I start 2010 with Overload of things to do and Underload of Cash?

.And finally, the UK Times has suggested 2020 as a final timeframe for the change, saying "If people can have “twenty-twenty” vision, then surely they should also live in the year “twenty twenty”.^ If Toyota is so smart, why did they spend $1 billion to do build something everyone says people don't want??

A TV ad for the 2007 Kids Choice Awards said "twenty oh-seven", rather than the generally accepted "two thousand seven".
Some suggest that after the "twenty X" pronunciation for current and future 21st century years has taken hold, future references to early 21st century years will change accordingly from the previous "two thousand (and) X" method; thus, they say, future generations will refer to the date of the 9/11 attacks in the United States as September 11, "twenty oh-one", just as 1911 was referred to as "nineteen hundred and eleven" at the time, but is now called "nineteen eleven".
