Notice that there is no verb in the first sentence. The verb “to be” is often left off, especially when speaking.

An ordinal number is formed by adding the suffix -ум or -юм to the cardinal number. The suffix -юм is only used for the numbers ду, се and сӣ.

якум: first
дуюм: second
сеюм: third
чорум: fourth
чилу панҷум: forty-fifth
дусаду ҳафтоду панҷум: two hundred and seventy-fifth

Ordinal numbers are often abbreviated when writing dates, as in “5-уми июл” (the fifth of July).
