The Global Language Monitor blog has predicted that Twenty Eleven will be one of the top words in 2011.
1. Twenty-Eleven – The English-speaking world has finally agreed on a common designation for the year: Twenty-eleven far outstrips ‘two thousand eleven’ in the spoken language. This is welcome relief from the decade-long confusion over how to pronounce 2001, 2001, 2003, etc.
This is fantastic news for the cause and needs to be put in front of every broadcast executive so they can rule that Twenty Eleven is the correct pronunciation of 2011.
