as for next year, it sounds a lot better to say twenty eleven rather than 2 thousand 11, as well as the years after that. Also for 2000-2009, do you think people will look back and say 20 oh something( 20 oh 1, 20 oh 9) or just stay with the two thousand for just that decade?
Sometimes I don’t even notice it, but I think I’m drifting towards twenty-ten. I’m sure it’ll catch on, though. Definitely by 2011 everyone will be saying “twenty-eleven.” Two-thousand-and-eleven is simply too many syllables. It’s simple phonoaesthetics.
