order is the usual indexing technique for the English language and all other languages which use the same letter system-the order of the alphabet
. It should be noted that in such indexing, numbers come before letters and most symbols come before letters. However if the numbers are spelt out they are treated as words.
- So: $2.99
- would come before 2.99
- but would come before 2 dollars 99
- and that would come before two dollars 99
- and that would come before 2 dollars 99
Roman numerals are treated as numbers, not letters.
Sticking things in alphabetical order is quite troublesome, due to the number of letters a word has. So in this list:
Betted would come after Bets and before Better.
