Adds ordinal suffixes to numbers (or a character vector of number-like words). Converts numeric vectors to cardinal numbers before adding prefixes unless cardinal is FALSE.

ordinal(x, cardinal = get_config("nombre::ord_cardinal", TRUE), ...)

nom_ord(x, cardinal = get_config("nombre::ord_cardinal", TRUE), ...)

Arguments

x

A numeric or character vector.

cardinal

Whether to convert a numeric vector with cardinal() before applying ordinal suffixes. When TRUE, 1 -> "first". When FALSE, 1 -> "1st". Defaults to TRUE. Default can be changed with set_config("nombre::ord_cardinal").

...

Further arguments passed to cardinal() when cardinal is TRUE.

Value

A character vector of the same length as x
