Generally, the trickiest numbers are those with FOUR, FIVE, EIGHT and NINE.
Why? It's because some FOUR words are spelled with U, and others are not. Make an effort to learn FOUR, FOURTH and FOURTEEN with U. Then remember that FORTY and FORTIETH do not contain U.
The only FIVE word with a V is FIVE. It changes to a F in FIFTH, FIFTEEN, FIFTY and FIFTIETH.
Some of the EIGHT words are just plain awkward! The word EIGHTH is especially confusing. The word ends in TH, but the T is already there, so simply add H at the end of EIGHT. Add simple endings for EIGHTEEN and EIGHTY. Then change the Y in EIGHTY to and I to spell EIGHTIETH.
The only NINE word without an E is the word NINTH. Use the E for NINETEEN and NINETY.
