    Default What should I pronounce the 1910's?

    The 1940s is pronounced nineteen fourties. The 1930s is pronounced nineteen thirties.
    Then, what should I pronounce or read the 1910's? Would somebody let me know?

    Nineteen Ten's makes the most sense. According to Wikipedia, 2010's is pronounced "twenty-tens" 2010s - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Not only does it make sense, but that is indeed what the 1910s are called. The apostrophe is not necessary.
