Ordinal Numbers in Greek from 20th to 100th
Comments Off on Ordinal Numbers in Greek from 20th to 100th
In a previous article, we talked about the ordinal numbers from 1st to 20th. However, there are many more numbers than that! According to Webster’s Dictionary, an ordinal number is defined as, “a number designating the place (such as first, second, or third) occupied by an item in an ordered sequence” and “a number assigned to an ordered set that designates both the order of its elements and its cardinal number.”
These numbers are expressed by saying 20th (twentieth), 30th (thirtieth), and so on in the English language. Here’s a look at how to say the ordinal numbers in Greek from twentieth to one hundredth.
