#GrammarTrivia: Cardinal numbers vs. ordinal numbers

Ada dua macam bilangan (numbers) dalam Bahasa Inggris: cardinal numbers dan ordinal numbers.

Cardinal numbers digunakan untuk menghitung.

Example: 

  • one, two, three, twenty-one, twenty-two, twenty-three, a hundred, … etc

Ordinal numbers digunakan untuk mengurutkan sesuatu.

Example: 

  • first, second, third, twenty-first, twenty-third, hundredth, … etc

Saat mengucapkan tanggal, kita menggunakan ordinal numbers.

Example:

  • March 10
  • Diucapkan: “the tenth of March“.
