What will we call the next decade?(Miscellany)
"2000" and "2001" will probably be called "two thousand" and "two thousand and one", under the influence of the movie _2001: A Space Odyssey_; but after that, people will probably gradually switch to calling the years "twenty oh three", etc. As for what we'll call the decade 2000-2009 (comparable to "the eighties", "the nineties", etc.), who knows? Several people have suggested "the aughts", but this may be too archaic to bear revival. No, don't bother snowing me with other proposals; let's just wait and see.
