# SIMPLE ENGLISH QUESTION?

Do you read 2019 “two thousand and nineteen” or “twenty nineteen” to say the year. What’s the most common form? Thanks

Actually, you would never use the AND. That would be incorrect. Two Thousand Nineteen...not Two Thousand and Nineteen.

The AND signifies a space, so a decimal point in this instance. "Two Thousand and Nineteen" is 2000.19

Otherwise, totally interchangeable.

To be clear (like on the phone) I sometimes say TWO OH ONE NINE. Otherwise TWENTY NINETEEN

It depends on the context.

Both are common, although you should say "two thousand nineteen" rather than "two thousand AND nineteen."

I never say the year, I write it on checks the few times I actually write checks. Either way is fine.

I think both are used interchangeably.

Twenty-Ninteen

In English, it's easier to say Twenty - Nineteen than Two Thousand-Nineteen.

Less syllables is generally more colloquial.
