Ordinal numbers in French
As we know we have ordinal numbers in English here are ordinal numbers in French:
First : Première*
Second : Deuxième/seconde
Third : Troisième
Fourth : Quatrième
Fifth : Cinqième
Sixth : Sixième
Seventh : Septième
Eighth : Huitième
Ninth : Neuvième
Tenth : Dixième
- The others are followed by the pattern : Number+ième or Number+ièm
Just a minor correction: it is -ième ... and not "-iéme".
Also, the feminine form of "premier" is première.
Yes, I added a * to it to show that it is different from others.
A few details:
The correct suffix is -ième, not -iéme, also -ièm doesn't exist.
"deuxième" has another form "second" which is used to refer to the last element of a list of two.
Fifth is "cinquième", not "cinqième"
Yes, I write so Fast that's why I have minor problems, and "ièm" exists for using muscline words :)
That's not true, -ième is used for both masculine and feminine nouns:
le deuxième / la deuxième
Of course that is true, you're wrong. I'll show you, go to : https://blogs.transparent.com/french/french-ordinal-numbers-1st-100th/
Before commenting please study more, if not, that makes other learners make mistakes.
I'm sorry, but I am a native speaker, and I can assure you and anyone reading this that -ièm does not exist.
The link you gave shows that premier is the only ordinal number to have separate masculine and feminine forms, and all the others have a unique form. Perhaps you thought adding -e to premier generalised to all ordinal numbers, but this is not true.
You know I rejected your idea because I thought you are not a native speaker, there are a few people that sometimes make mistakes and I considered you like them. You should have told me at the first comment that you are French. Don't apologize, I have to. I'm sorry.I have another question, Is "seconde" fenimine or muscline? Is it used for both muscline and finimine nouns like the rest?
BTW there are two "second"s : Second (pronounced "Segon") and Deuxième (pronounced Deuzièm).
The word "second" is used if there are not a third, fourth, fifth... and "deuxième" is used if there is a third fourt fifth.
