On the 1st of October, 2019. It is optional to include "the" and "of," but if you do, you must include both "the" and "of." It is improper to mention merely "October 1st" or "October 1st." Commas are not required when writing the year in British English, however they can be included if you like this style.
In American English, commas are required when writing the year. "October 1st, 2019" is correct usage. There should be a comma after each date in a series unless the dates are connected by a conjunctive such as "and," or a sentence-ending punctuation mark.
Comma rules differ slightly between Canadian and Australian English.
The second and third date forms are more official. Only saying "the 30th of July" or "the 30th of July" is wrong. For example, you could say "I love you, John, on the 30th of every month."
You can also write "July 30th" as well as "July 30th 2015". The year component does not need to be written out each time it changes.
In American English, the form is usually "July 30th." The exception is when the date is an exact day of the week/month because most people (especially non-native speakers) assume that the word "day" needs to be singular. For example, you would normally say "It's Monday, the 30th of July."
In British English, the form is usually "July 30th." However, "30th July" is also acceptable language.
As with many dates, the order of the words within the sentence affects their meaning. If you rearrange the sentences below, you will see what I mean: "I love you, John, on the 30th of every month." "John, I love you, so it doesn't matter to me what day it is."
When writing a date, such as January 1, 2016, the day is written as a cardinal number (in American style). As a result, you should never write anything on January 1st, 2016. The strange thing is that when you talk, even if the date is printed as January 1, you say "January first" (1). This is because when you speak about dates, they are referred to by month and year.
There are three ways to write down a date: using a calendar, an electronic device, or in writing. All of them work pretty much the same way. You start with the month followed by the day and then the year. For example, if you want to write down February 15th, 2014, you would say "Hello world".
Using a calendar is the most common method of writing down a date. There are two types of calendars: digital and physical. With a digital calendar, everything is done on a computer screen, while with a physical calendar, you need to print out a copy for yourself. It doesn't matter which type you use, the process is the same.
To create a calendar, you need to choose one or more dates during the year and mark them off on the calendar. Once you have done that, you can refer to the calendar at any time to see what date is coming up next. When writing down a date, it's important to remember where you placed the mark.
In the United States, the date is formally written in month/day/year format. As a result, "January 1, 2011" is commonly accepted as correct. It is improper to exclude the year or use a purely numerical representation of the date in formal usage. "11/1/2011" is also acceptable.
In Canada, "January 1st, 2011" is used instead. "November 1st, 2010" is also common but not strictly correct. In England and Wales, "01/01/2011" is standard. In Australia, New Zealand and India, "31/12/2010" is used instead.
In Latin-based languages such as Spanish and Portuguese, months are referred to by number without reference to its position in the year. Thus, "de enero de 2011" means "in January 2011" and not "on the 1st of January 2011".
In Chinese culture, people usually write the year first, then the month followed by the day. So, an equivalent statement would be "2011年1月1日". However, some people may choose to write the date in month/day/year order instead for simplicity's sake. Such as "January 1, 2011". But this is not common among the educated class.
In French culture, people usually write the year first, then the month followed by the day.
The worldwide standard suggests writing the date in the format YYYY-MM-DD. So, if both the Australian and the American utilized this, the date would be 2019-02-03. By putting the year first, this method of writing the date eliminates misunderstanding. For example, someone could think you were asking about the third week in February when actually you meant the third week in 2013.
In English-speaking countries where the year consists of 4 digits, it is common to see the year written as three letters followed by two numbers, as in KWG 8/65. However, this is not universal: some non-English-speaking countries write the date in the style I previously mentioned (or possibly in the style II previously mentioned).
In addition, there are various ways to write the month. A common system is to use initials for the months. So, January will usually be written as Jan or JAN. February as Feb or FEB, and so on. This is the system used in America. In England, however, it is common to write the month as a word: March, April, May, and so on. So, using the same examples, this would make January become IJan and February IFeb.
Finally, days can be written with words or numbers.
