Чтение числительных свыше 100

 

100 – a (one) hundred 101 – a (one) hundred and one 125 – a (one) hundred and twenty-five 200 – two hundred 300 – three hundred 1000 – a (one) thousand 1005 – one thousand and five 1235 – one thousand two hundred and thirty-five 2000 – two thousand 5345 – five thousand three hundred and forty-five 1,000,000 – a (one) million 1,000,000,000 – a (one)milliard (в Англии) one billion (в Америке)

 

Обратите внимание! В отличие от русского языка, числительные hundred, thousand, million не принимают окончания множественного числа (-s), когда перед ними стоит количественное числительное, которое является его определением: three hundredstudents, five thousandhouses, ten millionbooks. Hundred, thousand и million могут быть и существительными, когда после них употребляется существительное с предлогом of. В этом случае они принимают окончание –s:

 

hundreds of people – сотни людей

thousands of houses – тысячи домов

 

Чтение дробных числительных

 

Простые дроби (Common Fractions) Десятичные дроби (Decimal Fractions)
  ½ - a (one) half 1/3 – a (one) third 2/3 – two thirds ¾ - three quarters или three fourths 1 1/3 – one and a third 2 5/6 – two and five sixths   В простых дробях:   1) числитель выражается количественным числительным, а знаменатель – порядковым;   2) когда числитель больше единицы, знаменатель принимает окончание –s.   0.1 – nought point one или point one 0.01 - nought point nought one или point nought one 2.35 – two point three five 32.305 - three two (thirty-two) point three nought five   В десятичных дробях: 1) целое число отделяется от дроби точкой (а не запятой, как в русском языке); 2) каждая цифра читается отдельно. Точка, отделяющая целое число от дроби, читается point; 0 читается nought (в Америке 0 читается zero). Если целое число равно нулю, то оно часто не читается.

 

 

Хронологические даты

 

Годы, в отличие от русского языка, обозначаются количественными числительными, причём слово год отсутствует.

 

1900 – nineteen hundred – тысяча девятисотый год;

in 1907 – in nineteen o [ou] seven – в тысяча девятьсот седьмом году;

1965 – nineteen sixty-five – тысяча девятьсот шестьдесят пятый год.
