How do you read those three parts with numbers?


Americans would normally pronounce them:

June twenty-second <pause> nineteen eleven

It’s March sixteenth

and Brits would tend to pronounce them:

Twenty-second of June <pause> nineteen eleven.

It’s the sixteenth of March.

In both American and British English "George V", is pronounced:

George the fifth.
