 === Ordinals === === Ordinals ===
 +The "​backbone"​ of the ordinal suffix will be **T** and/or **D**, and the options are, in terms of T: **-te** (Danish, Dutch, German, Norwegian); **-ta** (Icelandic, Swedish); **-t** (English); and **-ti** (Icelandic). The other question is whether ordinal numbers will have the singular/​plural distinction or be invariant (like genitives). Also, one can see that morphologically,​ there'​s a similarity between ordinals and preterites, but happily there is no danger of conflict because numbers don't act as verbs.
