    A Question About Ordinal Numeral Adjectives

    Hi All

    My question is.....

    Do we have to write two-word ordinal numeral adjectives with dash or writing without dash is also possible?

    Example...

    Twenty-first: OK

    Twenty first: Is it OK ???

    Thanks

    It is less OK, despite the multiple question marks.

    Let one forum answer, as most answers will be similar, before asking somewhere else. And many of the people answering will be the same- the world of English language forums is not huge.
