Telling time: 22:33 in words, American & British English

1. Telling time using civil time, American English

The number of minutes is said first then the number of hours.


Our number of minutes is more than 30 (more than half an hour) so it means that our time is closer to the next hour.


In this case we say the number of minutes remaining till the next hour.


Subtract our number of minutes from 60: 60 - 33 = 27.

The hours:

Civil time day is divided into two 12-hour periods beginning alternately at 12 at midnight and at 12 at noon.


Since our number of hours is more than a 12-hour period, subtract 12 from our number of hours: 22 - 12 = 10.


Add 1 to the hours number since the number of minutes is more than 30 (more than half an hour) - the time is closer to the next hour: 10 + 1 = 11.


Telling time using civil time, answer:

[ | ] - Either could be used.

22:33 = twenty-seven minutes [of | till | until | before | to] eleven at night.


2. Casual time, American English

In the 12h standard (the day is divided into two 12-hour periods beginning alternately at 12 at midnight and at 12 at noon), to differentiate between the hours until noon and those after noon, an additional indicator is used to display time: a.m. (ante meridiem - before noon) and p.m. (post meridiem - after the noon).


p.m. = post meridiem (after the noon).

22:33 = ten thirty-three [p.m. | at night].

[ | ] - Either could be used.


Rounding up or down:

When telling time many of us use to round off the number of minutes to the nearest multiple of 5.


≈ approximately equal.

[ | ] - Either could be used.

22:33 ≈ twenty-five [of | till | until | before | to] eleven at night.


3. Telling time using military time, American English

Military time is used to avoid any possible confusion between a.m. - ante meridiem (morning, before noon) and p.m. - post meridiem (after the noon).


Each day is made up of a single 24-hour period, beginning at midnight.


Telling time using military time, answer:

No semicolon between numeric hours and minutes.

2233 hours = twenty-two thirty-three hours.

Did you know?

The analog clock's face is divided both into 12 equal parts, in the form of slices of pizza - as when we cut a pizza into 12 equal parts - these indicate the hours and respectively into 60 equal parts, which indicate the minutes.


The minute hand revolves 12 times faster than the hour hand: the hour hand goes once around the clock every 12 hours while the minute hand goes once around the clock every 1 hour.


The second hand revolves 60 times faster than the minute hand: the minute hand goes once around the clock every 60 minutes, while the second hand goes once around the clock every one minute; and 12 × 60 = 720 times faster than the hour hand.


The way we are telling time is a direct result of the way the analog clocks (mechanical clocks, with hands) looked like in the past (they still look almost the same).
