I've been using "twenty- oh-five" etc.all along, butcan't say I've
influenced many people.


Maybe that's because it should be "twenty-aught-five." John

Our local NPR station announcer says "twenty-oh-five, so you're not alone!
I even think of it myself that way sometimes.

I've never heard it before. I hear 3,200 pronounced as thirty-two
hundred instead three thousand, two hundred all the time, but when it is
that nice round figure, I always hear three thousand.


I'm wondering when the switch will take place with the date. We went
from 1999 which was pronounced "nineteen ninety nine" to "the year two
thousand." Now we're at "two thousand five." But I want it to become
"twenty ten" instead of "two thouand ten."
