Languages are tunnels that lead to the worlds of infinite knowledge so have fun with the English language! I literally vomitted gallons of blood in the process. Shocked at the level of written English level of the local Hong Kong students, which makes me understand why the universities want more students from mainland China.
In the process of marking, I came across these very common adverbs, "firstly","secondly", "thirdly", and some not so common such as "fourthly", "fifthly" and "sixthly". Immediately, I can tell something does not sound right. I have heard of "firstly" all the way up to "fourthly", but not "fifthly" and on.
It just sounds strange phonetically to me, which is why I prefer to use "first", "second", "third", "fourth", "fifth", "sixth" and so on if I expect the sequence to be longer than 4. But the real question is, can we really use "fifthly", "sixthly" or even higher?
And if we can, how popular are they as compared to the version without the suffix "-ly"? The reason is pretty simple, because you can use "first" or "first of all" instead of "firstly" to start the sequence. Another interesting observation is, although you will expect the counts to drop as you go down the list, the "secondly--thirdly" drop is Once it gets to "fifthly", the count drops way below triple digits at 37 per million words.
Is "fifthly", "sixthly" and so on used in British English? Similar case is observed for American English. Last but not least, if you are wondering which punctuation marks should I use before I write "firstly", "secondly", "thirdly", etc.
Finally, I give you the counts of "lastly" and "last but not least" "finally" is left out because it can appear in other non-sequential sentences. Looking at both the results of "lastly" and "last but not least", we can say that in American English, "last but not least" is more common whereas "lastly" is more common in British English.
