In terms of time with only hours and minutes, it is fine. However, I would like to know, how to say a time with seconds? Like 11:20:20 or 09:35:05. Thanks for that~
As a result of this question I discovered that the Speaking Clock is still alive and well in Britain.
Since most people nowadays have all kinds of devices - computers, mobile phones, quartz digital watches etc - which tell them the exact time, I suppose the Speaking Clock is not as much a part of everyday life as it was in the 40s, 50s and 60s (it began life in 1936).
In London, with the old telephone dials which used to have letters in groups of three, as well as numbers, you used to dial TIM to get the time, and the clock was known as Tim.
It used to say At the third stroke it will be nine, fifty seven and fifty seconds - pip, pip, pip; then At the third stroke it will be nine, fifty eight precisely - pip, pip, pip; thus giving you the exact time every ten seconds.
Nowadays you have to dial 123 on a BT phone, and the name of BT is introduced into the announcements - rather ridiculously asserting At the third stroke the BT time will be... Until tonight I had not realised that time was the property of a private company called BT!
