From Teflpedia

A fraction (/frækʃən/) is a number that represents a part of a whole. A fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example, one-half, eight-fifths, three-quarters.[1]

In English this involves using a cardinal number (representing the numerator) with an ordinal number (representing the denominator). The exceptions (irregular numbers) are that we say "half" rather than "second" and also tend to say quarter rather than ?"fourth".
