Both are acceptable.. However, anyone that says 2k14 or 2k any year should be drawn and quartered.

"So tonight I'm gonna party like it's one thousand, nine hundred and ninety-nine" said no one ever. It's twenty-fourteen.

Re: How do you say "2014"?

Just started looking up references and found it kind of interesting. It is...

4712 by the old Chinese calendar

1435 A.H. by the Islamic calendar

5774 by the Jewish calendar

5115 by the Hindu calendar

106 A.F. for those that understand the reference


Edit: Found a quicker reference than looking them up individually: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Templat...ther_calendars

Twenty fourteen, or perhaps two thousand and fourteen. Never 'Two Thousand Fourteen', because people would look at me as if I were an imbecile (not being resident in the USA).

Re: How do you say "2014"?

that's odd since I was always taught never to use an "and" in a number. Except when talking about money then "and" is used to divide the dollars and cents.

Even I'm slightly confused. I was thinking and was never used then it was brought up here and who knows if it is messing with me. When I think 2010 it's just two thousand ten with no and yet when I was 2001 it was two thousand and one. o.O

Re: How do you say "2014"?

Even when referring to the film 2001, I would always say "Two thousand one". I've never put in the "and".

Re: How do you say "2014"?

So, all of you "twenty-fourteen" people ... Do you enjoy Stanley Kubrick's classic sci-fi movie "Twenty-One?"
