A Cardinal number is a number like 1,2,3 that tells the quantity of something or someone. When we use Cardinal numbers in other ways, we refer to those with the term "nominal number."

We use Cardinal numbers to communicate a value of a noun, like how many.

Nominal numbers are used to give a name or identify something with one or more numbers.

For this exercise, I'm going to be discussing both cardinal numbers and nominal numbers.

So what is a cardinal number? Examples could be one chair, two tables, three spoons four people.

Nominal numbers are used for everything we want to identify but not used to count.

Your phone number is a nominal number. Your address contains a nominal number. Zip codes or postcodes, model identifications, sports team member, all use nominal numbers.

Remember, cardinal numbers are used to count.

Nominal numbers are used to identify.

I have examples to share with you. But first, I'm going to help you with pronunciation.

Here are the numbers up to the number 30. Listen carefully.

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29 and 30.

Now I need to tell you that, sometimes in American English, those numbers from 20 on up, sound a little differently than you heard me pronounce with the "t" sound.

Listen again, I'm going to do it just a little bit faster with just the numbers from 20 to 30.

Listen carefully. 20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29,30.

You'll notice you didn't hear so much of the "t."

That's more natural for American English speakers.

Here are some more numbers 40,50,60,70,80,90,100,200,300,400 etc.

1,000, 2,000, 3,000, etc. 1 million, 2 million, etc.

One of something is simple.

Examples like one chair, one table, one apple.

Two or more require a plural noun.

Most plural nouns just require an "s" at the end of the word for more than one of something.

Two chairs, three tables, four cups, five apples, six oranges, seven bananas, eight cars, nine days, 10 weeks, 11 months.

That's pretty easy, right? I just added an "s" to all of these words.
