Forum Episodes



I would like to put this discussion about episodes to a vote. Currently, they are listed as "the one hundred twenty-third episode", however I would like to change it to "the one hundred and twenty third". What do you guys think? Place your name in the relevant section.

1. With the and?

2. Without the and?

Discussion

AFAIK, the "and" is used in British english, and not in American english, when referring to numerals. Given the fact that this Wiki is focused mainly on the American english dubs, the most consistent thing would be to NOT add the "and". However, the "and" doesn't sound bad at all, but as I'm not a native English speaker, I'm not so sure about it...--Sega381 16:54, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Final Word

This should not have been put to a vote. The Manual of Style dictates that we use American English, and in American English the "and" would not be included. Thus, within our articles, the "and" is not included in numbers written as such. -- SSJ4 Goku(2) 10X.Ka.me.ha.me.ha.....talk.....contrib. 19:32, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

I agree. In American English, "and" is only used when describing the fractional component (if one exists) of the number. For example, "one hundred twenty-four and three tenths" for 124.3. It's preferred not to use the word in integral numbers. -- Nonoitall talk contr 21:24, May 17, 2010 (UTC)

Apologies, I guess it's just weird for us to read it like that, it just doesn't make sense in the way we would say it  SSJ4 Lewich  talk  contribs  10:24, May 18, 2010 (UTC)
