Pursuant on MwP’s comment about an earlier post of another indeterminate date, I have to advise that ‘Forth’ is a river, of which there is a ‘Firth’ somewhere near Edinburgh.
There’s a very famous rail bridge there.
The ordinal number you are looking for is ‘FOURTH’

Dogsbody is observant, but not quite eagle-eyed, as he failed to spot the mis-placed apostrophe in "T'was a Lover and His Lass" (sic).
Come on, Dogsbody! Can't you up your game a bit?

Dogsbody, Scrivener and Wretch said...

I take PSM's point.
Yes, I missed that.
BUT ...
I always have difficulty transcribing the contraction, [T'was]. Should it be ''t-was', ''twas', '-t-was' or what?

However, we weren't there on the [forth].

I notice, with some disappointment, that our absence was not noticed, documented or regretted by the gathering.

In these circumstances, who are we to criticise this otherwise-excellent chronicle of events?

parkingspaceman said...

'Tis (sic) not the event that is criticised, but merely the punctuation of the report. Allow me to clear Dogsbody's confusion: "It was" is contracted to "twas", therefore the apostrophe replaces the omitted letter(s) thus: "'Twas". Simples! tssp!*

*suggestions for a more suitable onomatopoeia welcomed
