Ordinal Numbers

Mark Complete

Ordinal numbers are used to show the order or sequence of people, places, events, or objects.

There are two ways of enumerating ordinal numbers in Filipino – the formal and informal. Below is the formal way of enumerating. It uses the prefix “ika-,” combined with the Filipino cardinal numbers (except for the first). Another way of writing ordinal numbers is by combining the prefix “ika-“ with the digit (except for the first). This formal way is suited for formal conversations and materials such as textbooks and events.
