    Hello,

    I would like to know whether there are two possible ways of saying numbers, for example, 1908.

    Thanks in advance!

    Nineteen hundred and eight.
    One thousand, nine hundred and eight.


    Sometimes people will say:

    Nineteen 'o eight. (To tell the time for example: 'the battle occured in...' or 'I will meet this person at...')
