English does not seem to have an interrogative ordinal such as how-many-eth and I can say most of you have heard of or taken part in debates over this issue before. While I heard some people call it a serious handicap for English, I always thought there must be a way to get around the problem. But honestly, I haven't made much progress in getting around the problem.
Here is a statement as an example: Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of America.
Of course, we can't ask: How-many-eth President of America was Abraham Lincoln?
I was wondering if you could share your ideas and suggest what you would consider the best way to ask questions to get an ordinal as the answer.
