Detail #281: A Really Unnecessary Ordinal

I was considering how 'enough' could be distinguished for mass and count nouns, and the idea of an 'enough' with numeral-like properties occurred, and suddenly, the idea of an ordinal 'enough' (the enoughth, an enoughth) occurred. 

I've previously probably pointed out how Finnish (and Swedish in Finland) have an ordinal form of 'how many', roughly 'how manieth the X'.
