Numbers Grammar Rules

Moroccan cardinal numbers refer to the counting numbers, because they show quantity. For example: I speak two languages. Ordinal numbers on the other hand tell the order of things and their rank: my first language is Moroccan. The examples below use numbers in different ways and places to demonstrate how they behave in a sentence.
