Hello hey hi, fellas! How are you all? :D
You all know how to pronounce numbers in English, right fellas?
One, two, three, four, five, six… sounds easy, right? :D
Do you have any difficulties when pronouncing a series of numbers, such as 555-206-1234, fellas?
Well, it’s not a difficult thing to do, right? :D But have you ever been confused on how to pronounce the ‘0’ there?
Have you ever questioned “Is it pronounced ‘oh’ or zero? Is pronouncing ‘oh’ instead of zero okay?”, fellas?
We’re going to talk about it today! #EngTrivia
It’s normal to say ‘oh’ instead of zero when you’re reading a series of numbers. #EngTrivia
For example, you can pronounce 90210 as nine oh two one oh. #EngTrivia
A series of numbers isn’t always long, fellas. A room number such as 404 is also a series of numbers. :) #EngTrivia
For example, you can pronounce “room 404” as “room four oh four”. #EngTrivia
When talking about math or science, you should pronounce it zero instead of ‘oh’. #EngTrivia
For example, “seven minus zero equals seven”. #EngTrivia
Another example, “The temperature is below zero”. #EngTrivia
It’s okay if you always pronounce ‘0’ as zero, fellas. But you can’t always pronounce it ‘oh’. #EngTrivia
It’s also better to pronounce ‘0’ as zero instead of ‘oh’, especially in formal situations :) #EngTrivia
But it is normal to say ‘oh’ when pronouncing a series of numbers in daily conversations. #EngTrivia
That’s all I can share for today, fellas. I hope it could be useful for you :)
