Incorrect spelling

52th

Incorrect spelling, explanation: this form is wrong, because we do not add suffix -th to ordinal numbers ending with second (as the word second ends with nd, this becomes its suffix). 52th is therefore a mistake and the correct form of writing this ordinal number is 52nd.


Correct spelling

52nd

Correct spelling, explanation: this ordinal number is correctly used, because we use suffix -nd for all ordinal numbers, which are pronounced with second at the end (so to these, which are pronounced with two at the end in their cardinal form. -th is a common suffix, but number 2 is one of the exceptions and is 2nd (second) in its ordinal version. Therefore 52nd is the correct form, and 52th is incorrect.
