ORDINAL NUMBERS

The ordinal numbers indicate the order of objects, persons have in a row. It is formed by means of the suffix –th placed after the cardinal:



the first; the second; the third

have special roots, while the other ones use the existing cardinal numbers:

the fourth; the fifth; the sixth;

the seventh; the eighth; the ninth;

the tenth; the eleventh; the twelfth

If the tens are to be used, modifications of spelling appear, -y is changed into ie because of the consonant preceding it:

the twentieth; the thirtieth

When the numeral is composite, the –th suffix is added only to the last element of the group:

the twenty first; the thirty fourth;

the fifty ninth

Showing the proportion in which a quantity increases, one may use the so called multiplicative numerals formed of cardinal numbers and the word fold:

double, three fold; four fold;.

If one wants to know how many times an action is performed, frequentative numerals are to be used:

once; twice; three times; four times

The numerals function as attributes, so they are placed in front of the nouns they determine:

Ordinal numbers are used for reading the days and cardinal ones for years. American English places the months first and then the days:
