Institutrice, I agree. Forgive the situation, please. People, even people with massive amounts of education, speak differently than they write. Thank you for posting. I’ll be listening, and will report back what I hear people saying.
Ok, since it’s a holiday I listened to some radio shows this morning. The air talent on wbur on three occasions were using the full “two thousand ten”, but one announcer on the BBC world new broadcast cleary said “twenty ten”
Well, on the show “Coast to Coast AM”, I noticed that host Ian Punnett deliberately said the year both ways, Twenty-Ten and Two Thousand Ten. Not many poll respondents yet, so we don’t have a big sample. It looks like there’s no clear trend in speech yet.
