Ordinal Numbers

  • Cardinal numbers express quantity: two (2), thirty-five (35) etc...
  • Ordinal numbers indicate order or rank: first (1st), second (2nd), third (3rd) etc...


For most ordinal numbers, the ending '-th' is used, with one or two exceptions for those inevitable irregular numbers:-
