Ordinal suffixes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Nth, X1st, X2nd, Xrd. 'Nth' is the suffix for everything not otherwise enumerated. 'X1st' is the suffix for the 21st, 31st, 1041st, etc - this applies to all of the decades except the units and teens; likewise for 'X2nd' and 'X3rd'. Specify only the suffix; e.g., for English, 'st,nd,rd,th,st,nd,rd'. If all of the items after a given point are the same for the target language, you can omit them, and the last item in the list will be used for all missing items; e.g., French can specify simply 'er,e', and German can specify simply '.'.

This controls day/month or month/day order when parsing numeric dates - the 'us' formats use the "month/day" style, as in 11/20 for November 20, and the 'eu' formats use "day/month", as in 20/11.
