20.1.4 Telling the date with years

In English the years until 2000 were spoken in centuries:

  Example
He was born on March 13, 1948.

correct: He was born on March 13 nineteen hundred forty-eight.
incorrect: He was born on March 13 thousand ninehundred forty-eight.
Now, we use the thousands (as the French have always done).
  Beispiel
He was born on May 14, 2002.

correct: He was born on May 14 two thousand and two.
incorrect: He was born on May 14 twenty hundred and two.

  Beispiel
He was born on May 14, 1973.
written:

Il est né le 14 mai 1973.

spoken:
Il est né le vingt octobre mille neuf cent soixante trois .





  Beispiel
He was born on April 28, 2002.
written:
Il est né le 28 avril 2002.

spoken:
Il est né le vingt huit avril deux mille deux.
