On my Gladilatian webpages whenever I alphabetize something I use the English alphabetization of the Roman transliteration of the word. Gladi- fers, however, use a more complicated scheme. To oversimplify a bit, = words are sorted by syllable and syllables are sorted first by vowel, then by consonants preceeding the vowel, and then by consonants following the = vowel. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D Dennis Paul Himes <> homepage: Gladilatian page: =20 Disclaimer: "True, I talk of dreams; which are the children of an idle brain, begot of nothing but vain fantasy; which is as thin of substance = as the air." - Romeo & Juliet, Act I Scene iv Verse = 96-99
