If you write the numbers numerically, the apostrophe is needed.

The suffix of ordinal numbers is "-(i)nci". If you write the number numerically, you put a point after the number. This time, you mustn´t bring "-(i)nci" because that point is already expressing the ordinalness.

1. = birinci

1inci / 1.inci / bir.


1. birinci 20. yirminci 1000000. bir milyonuncu
2. ikinci 30. otuzuncu 1000000000. bir milyar覺nc覺

7. yedinci 80. sekseninci

9. dokuzuncu 100. yüzüncü sonuncu in last position

The difference between "ilk" and "birinci".


They are very close to each other. But they have difference.


"ilk" isn´t an ordinal number exactly. If something is "ilk (first)", we understand nothing else like it hasn´t existed before.


ameliyat (surgeonal operation)

tecrübe, deneyim (the experience) ["tecrübe" is Arabic origined, "deneyim" is Turkish.]


ameliyat deneyim+i(poss.)--->ameliyat deneyimi (the operation experience)


Bu benim ilk ameliyat deneyimim. (This is my first operation experience.)

Bu benim birinci ameliyat deneyimim. [Indeed, this is correct both gramatically and meaningly as well. But the other one is better to hear. Therefore we don´t prefer this to use.]
