    Re: Date

    • November 16, 2003
    • Nov. 16, 2003
    • 11/16/2003, 11-16-2003, 11.16.2003 or 11.16.03
    Those are the formats I am most familiar with. Depending on geographic location the options are seemingly endless. I'm rather fond of 11.16.2003 personally

    8 - Eighth
    ninth
    tenth
    eleventh
    twelfth
    thirteenth
    fourteenth
    fifteenth
    sixteenth
    seventeenth
    eighteenth
    nineteenth
    twentieth
    twenty first
    ...
    thirtieth
    thirty first
    ...
    thirty ninth
    ...
    fortieth
    fiftieth
    sixtieth
    seventieth
    eightieth
    ninetieth
    one hundredth

    Get the basic pattern?

    Re: Date

    This may be different depending on your location but I typically say in the format of "December twentieth, 2007". There is a slight pause between 20th and 2007 as indicated by the comma. You can also say "Twentieth of December, 2007" but I do not hear it as often.

    1. It can apply to position by number. "I came in thirty second place is the race." or "This has to be the twentieth time I've had to reboot this computer today."

    2. You could do it that way, but it's not really natural to spell it all out like that. If you had to do it that way though, I would recommend capitalizing the numbers eg. December, Twenty Second, Two Thousand Seven - or something like that...

    3. Refer to 2. :)
