I just did a google search on news results for pronouncing 2010 twenty ten or two thousand and ten. There were 2,744 results and rising.
I don’t know whether a consensus has already been reached. I just listened to the radio news in the car on the way home and heard both versions in the same bulletin; one from a journalist, and another from a person being interviewed.
I think we’re confused. I personally lean towards twenty ten, but have been saying two thousand and ten and two thousand and eleven for a while.
A decision will be reached, but confusion may reign for a while. What do you think?
We hope to have the ability to do polls on Red Alert in 2010 (however it’s pronounced). For now you’ll have to vote through your comments.
Happy New Year to you all.
Update: Radio NZ, the BBC and a bunch of other media have decided on twenty ten.
