I listen to "Symphony Hall" on SiriusXM and I often think that sometimes the hosts try too hard to be serious and stately because they think it is appropriate for a classical music program.
Here's an example from last night:
The host was telling us that we should tune in on Sunday to listen to the special memorial program they are going to have for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
What he said was "the tenth anniversary of the eleventh of September."
He probably thought that "eleventh of September" was more formal and more??appropriate for a classical music program than "nine-eleven."
But the problem is that it is NOT the 10th anniversary of the eleventh of September, it's the 2011th anniversary of the eleventh of September (or there abouts). It's the 10th anniversary of 9/11 pronounced "NINE-ELEVEN."
