    I had to mouse over åttonde to figure out how to spell eighth... in English

    Me too! It looked funny when I typed it. Eighth.

    I relied on my spell checker... I don't think I have ever written it out before.

    Why is "August is the years eight month" incorrect?

    To moderators, I think you should add tips about ordinal numbers to this tree

    These seems to be the most common was to talk about months in a year, but would "Augusti är åttonde månad året" be wrong? (Not for this question, just in general)

    Yes, it's wrong. You could say augusti är den åttonde månaden på året.

    So, was there a lesson on how to say 5th, 6th, 7th, etc? If so, I must have overlooked it. I now find myself having to guess when it comes to the above mentioned.
