Thanks to Thomas Roche, I now know the progression:
  1. primary
  2. secondary
  3. tertiary
  4. quaternary
  5. quinary
  6. senary
  7. septenary
  8. octonary
  9. nonery
  10. denary
There's also "duodenary" and "vigenary." I'm gonna find an excuse to use "quinary" as soon as I can; I'm determined.

Yes, I am a word nerd.

Vigenary is so much like vinegary...wonder if there's ever any confusion.
