Useful tips: how to pronounce historical expressions

1666 = sixteen sixty-six; 1705 = seventeen-oh-five;

1800 = eighteen hundred; 1914 = nineteen fourteen;

2000 = the year two thousand; 2006 =two thousand and six

the 1790s= the seventeen-nineties

the 191Os = the nineteen-tens

1500-1599 = the sixteenth century; 1700s= the seventeen hundreds

the XX century = the twentieth century; the XXI century = the twenty-first century; the 1280s= the end of the thirteenth century

CE/c.e. = Common/Current/Christian Era.Another way of indicating the same period is

AD,the traditional calendar era, Anno Domini .

BCE/b.c.e. =Before the Common/Current/Christian Era (an alternative to Before Christ, abbreviated BC).

The two notations (CE/BCE and AD/BC) are equivalent; thus "2013 CE" = "AD 2013" and

"399 BCE" = "399 BC".

Kings' and Queens' Names
