 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS The first term corresponds to the masculine form "premier"; it could as well have been chosen to be "première". In contrast to A006969, hyphens and spaces are not counted. First differs at n = 17, where the hyphen in "dix-septième" is not counted here, but there. It would be nice to have short programs in various languages to spell out the n-th ordinal number in French. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..100.
