* June 1, 2002
7. June one, twenty two
8. June the first, two thousand and two
9. June first , twenty and two
10. June the first, two,o,o, second
11. June the first, two, o,o,two
12. June one, two hundred and two

(Which ones are read correctly?)

  • English -

    1 - It's a good exclamation! Put an exclamation mark at the end. "Guys" is not generally considered rude; it's just casual. It's an indication of familiarity with whomever you're speaking to.

    2 - 4 -- All are fine and all mean the same thing.

    8, 9, and 11 read somewhat correctly. I hear different people (in life and on TV and radio) use slightly different expressions. Here are what I hear most:

    June first, two thousand two
    June first, two thousand and two
    June first, twenty o two

  • English -

    5 and 6 are essentially the same, achieving a goal. However, without a context to clarify it, 5 might mean that you finally constructed a physical object.
