These errors/typos occur in Annex D.2.6 “Ordinals”, of the dtc/2015-03-02 version of DTV 1.2:
· The synonym for “eleventh member” is given as “third”; it should be “eleventh”.
· All the ordinals are given as “General Concept: thing”; they should be “General Concept: member” for consistency with the names of these ordinals. “First member” in Annex D.2. should also be “General Concept: member”. (Comment: “member” is “General Concept: thing” in D.2.2. Making the ordinals “General Concept: member”, clarifies that the ordinals only apply to things that are members of unique sequences, not to things in general.)

Clarify the "Nth member" concepts in D.2.6
'member' is a 'role', it is not a 'general concept', so it cannot be the text of a General Concept paragraph. But the concept 'second member' does specialize the (role) concept 'member', which is the point of the issue. The text is changed to state this.
The clarification concern is valid. The problem is that 'second member' itself has no Definition; and is separated in the text from the verb concept that implicitly defines it. The text is reorganized to place the role declaration immediately before the verb concept to supply a Definition.
