|+||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.|
