  • First = 1st

    Second = 2nd

    Third = 3rd

    Fourth = 4th

    As you can see, the two letters after the number are the last two letters of the word.

    So 21 = twenty first = 21st.

  • It all matters on pronouncation. You know the drill for 1 digit numbers,

    1st

    2nd

    3rd

    4th

    5th

    6th

    7th

    8th

    9th

    And take a look at ’21 »s last digit. It’s one, so it becomes first. But, ’11 »s pronouncation is eleven, it does not end with the word one. Therefore, it is 11th. Here are some examples to make you understand.

    28th birthday = twenty EIGHT, eight uses th so 28th.

    23rd of November = twenty THREE, three uses rd so 23rd.

    Also, remember that all numbers from 10-20 uses th because they do not pronounce the last digit as how they would in a single digit.Examples

    15th = FIFTEEN, doesn’t end with five, so th.

    13th = THIRTEEN, doesn’t end with three, so th.

    Example

  • The report is due on February 21st.

    Day 11 is 11th.

    Why don’t you put those numbers in words and then see which is correct and which is not? 21st is « Twenty first » and 21th is « Twenty Oneth » I don’t know ’bout you, but not one the English speaking people I’ve come across in my entire life have EVER said « Twenty oneth. » 🙂
