# NUMERAL DEFINITION AND EXERCISES

In English grammar, **numerals** function as a part of speech to represent numbers, quantify nouns, and express numerical relationships.

There are two main types of numerals in English: cardinal numerals and ordinal numerals.

**Cardinal Numerals**: Cardinal numerals represent specific quantities or numbers.

They answer the question ** how many**? and are used to count objects or denote a precise quantity.

**Examples:**

*One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten*

*Eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen*

*Twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety*

*One hundred, two hundred, three hundred, etc.*

*One thousand, two thousand, three thousand, etc.*

**Ordinal Numerals**: Ordinal numerals denote the order or rank of items in a sequence.

They answer the question **in what order?** and are used to indicate the position of something in a series.

**Examples:**

*First, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth*

*Eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth, nineteenth*

*Twentieth, thirtieth, fortieth, fiftieth, sixtieth, seventieth, eightieth, ninetieth*

*Hundredth, thousandth, millionth, billionth, etc.*

**Numerals** can function as determiners when they directly modify nouns, indicating the quantity or position of the noun.

**For example:**

**Cardinal Numeral as Determiner**: __Three__ apples fell from the tree.

**Ordinal Numeral as Determiner**: __The first__ prize goes to the winner.

**Numerals** can also function as adjectives when they modify nouns but do not directly specify quantity or order.

** For example:**

**Cardinal Numeral as Adjective**: *She bought two pairs of shoes.*

**Ordinal Numeral as Adjective**: *He is in his third year of university.*

Additionally, **numerals** can function as nouns themselves, particularly when referring to numbers as concepts or entities.

**For example:**

__The number eight__* is considered lucky in some cultures.*

*She divided the class into groups of four.*
