[ordenal] (s.xiii1)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 7,395a ordinalis; Gdf: 5,618a ordinal; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF: ; DMF:  ordinal; TLF:  ordinal; OED:  ordinal n.1 / ordinal a. and n.2; MED:  ordinal n.; DMLBS: 2047c ordinalis ]
ordinal,  hordinal  

The DMF’s decision to interpret the word as derivative of Latin ordinarius, and to gloss it accordingly, seems to be at odds with the etymological evidence of ordinalis. Perhaps with the exception of sense 2, the word seems to be used as a (rare) synonym for ordenaire.
