How to pronounce Dollar Amounts?

How to pronounce Dollar Amounts?


$1 – a dollar or one dollar.
$3 – three dollars. *not three dollar
$50 – fifty dollars. *not fifty dollar
The nickname for the US Dollar is buck. We use buck when we speak in a casual situation:

$1 – a buck. *one buck is less common
$3 – three bucks.
$50 – fifty bucks.

When the amount has dollars and cents, we pronounce the amount in two ways. Remember, the [.] is pronounced [and] when we pronounce money:

#1 – the long way

$1.33 – one dollar and thirty-three cents.
$13.79 – thirteen dollars and seventy-nine cents.
$110. 99 – one hundred ten dollars and ninety-nine cents.

#2 – the short way

$1.33 – one thirty-three.
$13.79 – thirteen seventy-nine.
$110. 99 – one ten ninety-nine.
