Pronunciation

Among experts and the general public, there is a debate as to how specific years of the 21st century should be pronounced in English. Although the majority of English-speakers say "two thousand (and) X" for any specific year post–1999, it is often suggested that the continuation of this type of pronunciation for the entire 21st century would be inappropriate or unnatural, given the alternative "twenty X" option. The English language is a West Germanic language that originates in England. ... This article is about the year. ...


Academics suggest that since former years such as 1805 and 1905 were commonly pronounced as "eighteen oh" or "nineteen oh" five, the year 2005 should naturally have been pronounced as "twenty oh-five".[1] Many experts agree that majority usage of "two thousand (and) X" is a result of influences from the Y2K hype, as well as the way "2001" was pronounced in the influential 1968 film, 2001: A Space Odyssey. 1805 was a common year starting on Tuesday (see link for calendar). ... For other uses, see 1905 (disambiguation). ... Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... The year 2000 problem (also known as the Y2K problem and the millennium bug) was a flaw in computer program design that caused some date-related processing to operate incorrectly for dates and times on and after January 1, 2000. ... Year 2001 (MMI) was a common year starting on Monday (link displays the 2001 Gregorian calendar). ... Year 1968 (MCMLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Monday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... A movie poster from the original release of 2001 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is an immensely popular and influential science fiction film and book; the film directed by Stanley Kubrick and the book written by Arthur C. Clarke. ...


Some linguistic and academic experts have predicted that the "twenty X" pronunciation method will eventually prevail, but a timeframe as to when this change will occur often differs. The year 2010 is suggested by many [citation needed] while 2011[1] and 2013 are popular as well. The latest timeframes for change are usually placed at 2020[1] or 2100. Broadly conceived, linguistics is the study of human language, and a linguist is someone who engages in this study. ... Plato is credited with the inception of academia: the body of knowledge, its development and transmission across generations. ... 2010 (MMX) will be a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2011 (MMXI) will be a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2013 (MMXIII) will be a common year starting on Tuesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2020 (MMXX) will be a leap year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... 2100 can refer to either: The first year of the 2100s decade. ...


According to a recent press release, David Crystal, author of the Cambridge Encyclopedia of the English Language, has predicted that the change of pronunciation to "twenty X" will occur in 2011, as "twenty eleven", explaining that the way people pronounce years depends on rhythm, rather than logic. Crystal claims that the rhythm or "flow" of "two thousand (and) ten", beats that of "twenty ten", but the flow of "twenty eleven" beats "two thousand (and) eleven".[1] Alternatively, Ian Brookes, editor-in-chief of Chambers Dictionary, suggests the change will occur in 2013. And finally, the UK Times has suggested 2020 as a final timeframe for the change, saying "If people can have “twenty-twenty” vision, then surely they should also live in the year “twenty twenty”.[1] Professor David Crystal, OBE (born 1941 in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, UK) is a linguist, academic and author. ... 2011 (MMXI) will be a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Times is a national newspaper published daily in the United Kingdom (and the Kingdom of Great Britain before the United Kingdom existed) since 1788 when it was known as The Daily Universal Register. ... 2020 (MMXX) will be a leap year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


In addition, the Vancouver Olympics, taking place in 2010, are being officially referred to by Vancouver 2010 as "the twenty-ten Olympics".[citation needed] The London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006 has restricted the commercial use of the terms "Two Thousand and Twelve" and "Twenty Twelve", to protect the London 2012 Olympics.[2] Chicago 2016, which operates the official Chicago bid for the 2016 games, refers to the "twenty-sixteen games". (Redirected from 2010 Olympics) The 2010 Winter Olympics, known formally as the XXI Olympic Winter Games, will be held in Vancouver in the province of British Columbia in Canada. ... The London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Act 2006 is a piece of UK legislation introduced following the decision of the International Olympic Committee to stage the 2012 Olympic Games in London. ... (Redirected from 2012 Olympics) Nine cities submitted bids for the 2012 Summer Olympics, and five have made it to the shortlist for hosting the Games of the XXX Olympiad. ... The Chicago 2016 Olympic bid is yet another attempt by the United States — with the support of other cities, townships and villages in the state of Illinois — to be chosen by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) as the host city for the 2016 Summer Olympics. ... The 2016 Summer Olympics, formally called the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, will be an international athletic event that has yet to be organized by the International Olympic Committee. ...


Some suggest that after the "twenty X" pronunciation for current and future 21st century years has taken hold, future references to early 21st century years will change accordingly from the previous "two thousand (and) X" method; thus, they say, future generations will refer to the date of the 9/11 attacks in the United States as September 11, "twenty oh-one."


Trends

In the population

  • The baby boomer generation (which "officially" includes babies born after the end of World War II in 1945 until around 1964) begins to reach the age of retirement in North America and Europe. A rapid expansion of the number of retired persons due to the aging Baby Boomers is expected to have a drastic effect on the economies of these countries. For example, in the USA, Social Security and Medicare may be under strain. This expected surge in the distribution of retirement benefits has been dubbed the pension bomb.
  • Those people born in the 1960s and 1970s will most likely be approaching positions of power by the end of the decade (late boomers plus the so-called Generation X in the United States). The Echo boom generation is expected to be out of university by decade end.
  • It is likely that by the end of the decade, only a handful, if any, veterans from World War I will have survived and only a very few from World War II. Equally, it is quite possible that the last people born in the Nineteenth Century will die during this decade.
  • Global population is likely to reach around 7.5 billion by the end of the decade, representing a significant slowdown in growth. In Europe, the population is projected to decline during the decade.[3]

In science

  • Both the International Linear Collider and ITER may be completed during the latter half of the decade.
  • Global warming is likely to continue, with global temperatures steadily rising. It is not predicted, however, that temperatures will increase by more than 1 degree Celsius before 2020.[4] Although no serious disruption is predicted, some effects of warmer global temperatures will be noticeable.[5] In 2012, the Kyoto Agreement in its current form will expire. Whatever measures come out of attempts to extend, revamp or replace the agreement will likely decide how the problem is handled on a global scale.

In technology

  • Around this time, the Hubbert peak of global oil production predicts widespread disruptions to conventional energy supplies of oil and natural gas. Some academic and business research into hydrocarbon deposits has concluded that the continued usage of this form of energy source will inevitably create widespread reductions in its supply during the 2010s, resulting in a sudden need to switch to alternative "green" energy sources such as solar, nuclear energy and wind power. Similar predictions about the "end of the age of oil" have been made almost since oil first became a major commodity, and so far no such predictions have borne out. However, Marion Hubbert's 1954 prediction that U.S. oil production would peak in 1970 proved to be accurate, so it is possible that the prediction of the same methodology applied to world oil production might well be equally accurate. See also future energy development.
  • In the year 2012, conventional CPUs are expected to reach their maximum computing potential, according to Moore's Law. Moore's Law states that roughly every 24 months the computing power of processing units will double. Reaching the maximum potential would have devastating consequences on the technological industry, and possibly the global economy. [6] It is hoped that this could open up the door for true quantum computing development, though this is likely to be advantageous only to certain programming routines. There is also the potential for breakthroughs in "3d" chip design, which would usher in a new paradigm similar to Moore's Law.
  • Many new technological developments that occur during the 2010s will likely result from the concerns of the latter half of the 2000s with global warming and high oil consumption.

Stereophile: Exposure 2010S integrated amplifier (2062 words)
Accordingly, the input impedance of the 2010S is lower than average, which may force the prospective owner to be more cautious than usual when it comes to choosing source components and interconnects.
That first gain stage in the amplifier section is a long-tail transistor pair loaded with a constant current source, after which the signal is cascoded—another new twist for the 2010S, this one to improve rejection of the positive supply rail.
The first piece of music I listened to through the Exposure 2010S was Brahms' Clarinet Quintet in B Minor, Op.115, albeit a different version from the one mentioned in this issue's "Listening." This one was recorded by Charles Neidich and the Juilliard String Quartet (CD, Sony S2K 66285).
