    Dates in Written English

    British English
    In British English the day is usually put before the month. If you wish, you can add the ending of the ordinal number. The preposition of before the month is usually dropped. You can put a comma before the year, but this is not common anymore in British English. It is common, however, if the date is part of a sentence: The conference takes place 10-12 December, 2003.

    Example: 5(th) (of) October(,) 2004

    American English
    In American English the month is usually put before the day. If you wish, you can put the definite article before the day. It is common to write a comma before the year.

    Example: October (the) 5(th), 2004

    You can also write the date by using numbers only. The most common forms are:

    Example: 5/10/04 or 5-10-04
    Note, however, that 5/10/04 usually means 5 October 2004 in British English and May 10, 2004 in American English. To avoid any possible confusion, you should spell out the month or use the abbreviation.
