Usage notes[edit]

  • Excepting "one" and "two", all the cardinal numbers may precede or succeed the modified noun or substantive. Prepositive use is more usual, however.
  • The cardinal numbers "three" to "nine" exhibit polarity: they differ in gender from the modified noun or substantive. Polarity is also possible even when the number is postposed.
