Incorrect spelling

23th

Incorrect spelling, explaination: 23th is the wrong way of writing the ordinal number twenty-third, because it doesn’t end with the sound -th. When the ordinal number ends with third, the only correct suffix is -rd as in 23rd.


Correct spelling

23rd

Correct spelling, explaination: this ordinal number, 23rd, is written with suffix -rd, because, when pronounced, it is heard (twenty-third). Another suffix is -th, which is incorrect to use here, because there is no -th at the end of the word when we pronounce it. This is why writing 23th is wrong.
