Blog 2 – Part 2 (Arranging in alphabetical order)

abc

A, B, C, it’s easy as 1, 2, 3!

Original list:

  • El Paso, Texas
  • Saint Nicholas, Belgium
  • The Lord of the Rings
  • Newark, New Jersey
  • XVIIme siècle
  • .38 Special
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • New York, New York
  • 1001 Arabian Nights
  • The 1-2-3 of Magic
  • Albany, New York
  • #!%&: Creating Comic Books
  • The Hague, Netherlands
  • $35 a Day Through Europe
  • H20: The Beauty of Water
  • Plzen, Czech Republic

My rearranged list:

  • #!%&: Creating Comic Books
  • $35 a Day Through Europe
  • .38 Special
  • The 1-2-3 of Magic
  • 1001 Arabian Nights
  • Albany, New York
  • El Paso, Texas
  • H20: The Beauty of Water
  • The Hague, Netherlands
  • The Lord of the Rings
  • New York, New York
  • Newark, New Jersey
  • Plzen, Czech Republic
  • Saint Nicholas, Belgium
  • St. Louis, Missouri
  • XVIIme siècle

Did you put The Hague under T or H?

H, more than likely most databases will omit “The” or “A”, nouns or plurals.

Did you put El Paso under E or P?

E, even though El stands for “The” in English it would be best placed in E because most of the list in written in English.
Which came first in your list, Newark or New York?

New York, “Space” takes precedence over A-Z.
Does St. Louis come before or after Saint Nicholas?

After, even though St. stands for Saint I put it after to keep it following the alphabetical order. It is debatable however to which is correct.
How did you handle numbers, punctuation, and special characters?

I used the ASCII table.
Assuming the italicised terms are book titles, what might be a more useful way to organise this list?

To have book titles and cities separated into two lists.
If the cities represent places you’ve visited and the book titles are ones you’ve read, how could chronology be used to order the list in a more meaningful way?

Again two lists, have the cities and book titles you have most recently visited/read in chronological order.
