Hi,

I'm from Brazil and I need to write a date as following bellow.Please which form may I use

Dated this__Day __Month,__Year.

It's an odd phrasing.

I'd just write it like this. eg

Dated this 15 Day August Month, 2010 Year.

how do you write

10th of january 2000

is it

A= 10/1/00

Or is It

B= 10/1/20

Or is it neither

What is it please help

Thanks Loads Emotion: big smile
In the US, we say January 20, 2000, and write 1/20/00.

Most other countires write 20/1/00.

Sometimes it won't matter, because we know we don't have 20 months, so we'll figure out that it means the 20th day of the 1st month. Other times it will matter quite a bit -- 5/7 could be May 7 or July 5. If you are writing for an international audience, it's better to use words for the month to avoid confusion.

in American Style Months comes first then Date and it is compulsory if months comes first then th will not be use for date

i.e. June 25th is wrong and June 25 is correct way to write
To say that writing the date Month, Date and then Year is American is incorrect.

Equally, to say that writing the date; Date, Month and then year is British is incorrect.

In the 17th and 18th Century the common style for writing dates in all English was written Month, Date and then year. This occured in all British dominions including those in the Americas.

During the 19th Century the British style leaned towards its European neighbours and dates turned to Date, Month and then year to improve comunications with other European Countries.

So the "American" style of date is in fact the native "British" date format that simply hasn't changed for 300 years.

Also, to say that Date, Month and then Year date format in English is "British" is incorrect. In fact most English speaking Countries outside of the Americas use Date. Month and Year including English speaking Europeans, Africans, Asians and Australasians. Please remember that this English language date format is as much Australian as it is British. Emotion: smile

Always use the cardinal number when writing a date with month/day format (with or without the year): January 1 The ordinal number is used when writing a date with date/month format: 1st of January.

The confusion on who to write a date probably stems from the verbal pronunciation but the above is the correct rule for writing a date.Emotion: smile

You should know that. Alll of them are correct but in areas like schools and colleges they have their own chosen way of writing the date and you have to follow it. E.G : The School of Smilies writes its date like this 2-6-12 for secong June 2012, then that's the way you have to use. Hope I am clear, man and I hope you get it, whoever you are.
