Tjueførste like the first 10, just with "tjue" as a prefix, very similar with the numbers

Usually in Norwegian this is used for the days of the month, 1. - 31. and for the weeks in the year and the months.

so the date  ;4th of april 2015  you would say : fjerde april tjuefemten, some does say the year as totusenogfemten.

There is not a consensus about whether to pronounce the year as tjue15 or totusen og 15. that is to sat twenty or two thousand , so both are used.

The  two thousand form was mostly used up until 2011 , and then as translating from English twenty-eleven , it started to be used more and more.

As in counting, Norwegian is counting to nineteen hundred and then starts to count in thousands:

2 000 =  to-tusen

2 500 = to-tusen-fem-hundre

So, today would be mandag, åttende december... you lost me at the years. I know that you combine 20 with 14, but you'd written only for 2015 and it doesn't really seem like just combination. You changed the ending. Why? Does it always follow that pattern? You switch that one ending for another? Or do you have several different rules?

One more question, do you have to capitalise the dates, like in English and German? Or not? I know I am tiring you with all these questions, but I bet others are asking them as well, only not really. Oh, and feel free to correct any mistakes you see in my posts. You don't even have to inform me, really, I'm just trying to help, but I wouldn't like to mislead people.
