How to pronounce 2010?

Hi everyone out there!

How are you doing this year so far? before you can answer this question maybe you need to know how to pronounce the year itself!

There's been a lot of debate as to how to say it: twenty-ten or two thousand ten.

One of the most important English Linguists -David Crystal- thinks that the rhythm or "flow" of "two thousand (and) ten", beats that of "twenty ten" (here you are the full wikipedia article about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010s)

And if you go to the link below (please copy the link and paste it in a new window) , you will hear (and read) some other opinions on this topic.


What's your personal feeling?

Mine is definitely twenty-ten!

See you soon!
