Incorrect spelling


Incorrect spelling, explanation: many users of English make a common mistake of spelling the word ninth as nineth. It is true that when we create ordinal numbers in English, we usually add the -th ending to a number so e.g. we have fourth, sixth or seventh. However, in the case of nine, when we add the -th ending, we need to remove the -e letter. Therefore, the only correct form is ninth.
