Hello,
I know that to pronounce dates you have to divide the date of the year in two parts: 1850 eighteen fifty. But what if you have to pronouce a year like 155 a.d? I would say one hundred and fiftyfive. is it correct?
Thanks. Ripley

There are various ways for various dates, Rip, somewhat dependent on context. Here, if the topic is ancient Rome, and a date or two has been mentioned already, I'd just say 'one fifty-five'.


. . . . and PLEASE nobody ask about 2012.
