In linguistics, and more precisely in traditional grammar, a **cardinal numeral** (or **cardinal number word**) is a part of speech used to count. Examples in English are the words *one*, *two*, *three*, and the compounds *three hundred [and] forty-two* and *nine hundred [and] sixty*. Cardinal numerals are classified as definite, and are related to ordinal numbers, such as the English *first*, *second*, *third*, etc.^{[1]}^{[2]}^{[3]}
