How Do You Pronounce 2011?

People have asked, "When you pronounce the name of a year, do you need the 'and'?"

Either way is correct, but Britons tend to use "and" and Americans tend to omit it:

    * Two thousand eleven (American)
    * Two thousand and eleven (British)

Last year people argued about how to pronounce 2010, and I expect the controversy to continue in 2011. One linguist thinks the difficulty of pronouncing "and eleven" will drive people to say "twenty eleven." Read my thoughts on formatting the name of a year.
