Ordinal Numbers to Express Position
ئورۇن بىلدۈرىدىغان تەرتىپ سان
Ordinal numbers may be used to express either the physical or abstract position of something. In the former case, this is tantamount to such English expressions as "the second from the left" or "the third from the bottom". The ablative suffixes دىن|تىن are generally used to express the "from".
When combined with the derivational suffix لىك, the ordinal numbers turn into nouns that express rank in a contest, analogously to the English "first place", "second place", etc.
