This feature compares ordinal numerals (’first, second, third ...’) with adnominal cardinal numerals (’one, two, three ...’). There are different ways in which ordinal numerals are formed, especially with regard to ‘first’ and ‘second’, which are often irregular.
Since we are considering only synchrony, words like English third and fifth are not considered derived from three and five, although from a diachronic perspective they are of course derived.
