Description Enji Cooper freebsd_committer 2017-03-12 05:37:03 UTC
"n'th" is a valid alternative for "nth": https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/nth . I don't believe that igor should be flagging this as a typo.
Comment 1 Warren Block freebsd_committer 2017-03-17 20:06:40 UTC
"Th" is flagged as a spelling error because it is a misspelling found in FreeBSD documents.  I would say the best way to write that is Nth, distinguishing the N from the rest of it.  I'm hesitant to remove it from the list of misspelled words because a bare "th" is almost always a spelling error.  A good argument could be made for removing both it and "fr" on the basis that they are country codes.

In this case, I would still prefer the "Nth" form.
