40 (forty) is the natural number following 39 and preceding 41.
Despite being related to the word "four" (4), 40 is spelled "forty", not "fourty". The reason is that etymologically (even in accents without the horse-hoarse merger), the words have different vowels, "forty" containing a contraction in the same way that "fifty" contains a contraction of "five". The letters of the word "forty" are in alphabetical order; this is the only number that has this linguistic property in English.
