Bonus material

We also use classifiers with ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.). We just add thêe in front of a number to make it ordinal, like this:

thêe nèung or raaekfirst
thêe săwngsecond
thêe săamthird
thêe sèefourth
etc.etc.

To use a classifier with an ordinal number, we place it between the noun and the number:

phûu-chaai khon râaek

the first man

ród-yon khan thêe săam

the third car

dtóe dtuua thêe săwng láe săam
