Is it Two Thousand Ten or Twenty Ten?

Discuss. Please discuss. I will love you if you discuss.

Twenty ten. Why this is even an issue is beyond me. Think about it:

1945 is not "one thousand, nine hundred and forty-five;" it's "nineteen forty-five." 1776 is not "one thousand, seven hundred and seventy-six;" it's "seventeen seventy-six."

Very true. Good point.

Personally, I would call them the "Ten's"

Well how do you say "1015" in year-speak?

I don't care either way, but why would we switch from two thousand and nine to twenty ten? Why didn't we say twenty oh nine? That didn't spell out the way I wanted it too, but you get the idea. And, for the record, I think twenty ten sounds better.

I would say two thousand and whatever in most instances, maybe occasionally throw in a twenty ten to keep people guessing

Well, I don't know why any of you are pronouncing the next decade twenty ten or two thousand ten. Quick lesson, a decade is 10 years.

Personally, I will be calling this year "oh ten". The next decade will consist of oh eleven, oh twelve, oh thirteen, and so on.

OK for anyone else that is unaware, this a new decade. Here's the quick lesson:

2000- 1
2001- 2
2002- 3
2003- 4
2004- 5
2005- 6
2006- 7
2007- 8
2008- 9
2009- 10

THAT'S 10 ******* YEARS!!!

Two thousand eight, two thousand nine, two thousand ten

THAT'S 10 ******* YEARS!!!

I don't know if you're correcting me, but my intent wasn't that it wasn't a new decade. It's the fact that the original question and subsequent acceptance of said question is grammatically wrong. It should be, "How will you pronounce the next year" not "decade" because the entire next decade will not be known as 2010. So, unless you plan on calling every year for the next 10 years "2010", the original question is worded wrong.

Also, 2KX sounds badass.

what will we call the next decade?

we called this one the aughts right? Still weird, should have called them the oohhs

Now what will we call 10,11,12,13,14...the teens?

When I first made the thread, I had + after the 10 part of the year. I reworded it and forgot to put those back in.

Technically, we should have been calling this last decades the "aughts".

twenty-aught-one
twenty-aught-two

you get the pattern.

Twenty-ten will by my choice, because that is what is grammatically correct.

Eventually it will become Twenty Ten or Eleven or whatever.

I'm more interested to see what the LAST decade will be called throughout history. We have the 70s, 80s, and 90s. But...what comes next?

I don't think grammatical correct is grammatically correct.

CJ's pick is DQ'd! Two Thousand Ten it is!

Just the early 21st century probably.

We had some programme last week going over the last decade and they called it the best of the noughties. So the noughties is good for me.

I'll probably use two thousand ten but I think twenty ten sounds better.

The 2000s. Those decades are the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. As you move further along in our future: 2000-2009 CE or Early 21st Century.

Twenty ten. Though the first 2 decades are just doomed to be awkward. Once we get to 2020 we can start talking about the 20s and everything will be OK.

Had this chat with some mates the other day.

We came to conclusion that it will be difficult until we hit the teens when it becomes easier to say.

Twenty 10 is one way, O 10 is another that will probably get use. Those two are certainly the easiest in general talk. Obviously it will be 2 thousand and 10 in formal talk.

2012 is going to be a pain in the ass though, nothing really sounds right with "12" other than the mouthful that is 2 thousand and 12.
