i tun können say right now that ich most definitely did not understand the intended meaning des “whichth” until sie explained it. If someone said it zu me without having actually read this post beforehand ich would think they had actually a lisp or were trying to imitate middle english. The being said, i’m notfall opposed to the proposal of making it a part von the language. But i think the argumente for it can be do stronger.

I'm used to hearing, "Which number president was Barack Obama." I'm sensibly satisfied through this construction.
