itST

Returns the English ordinal indicator, also known as the ordinal suffix, of a cardinal number. The ordinal indicator turns a cardinal number into an ordinal number. While a cardinal number shows quantity (1, 2, 3, etc.), an ordinal number shows position in a sequence (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.).

Can return the complete ordinal number ("1st", "2nd", "3rd", etc.), or the ordinal indicator alone ("st", "nd", "rd", etc). Can return the ordinal indicator in lower case or upper case.
