How would you sort: côté (side), côte (coast), cote (dimension), coté (with dimensions)?
The french are not the only ones with "weird" sorting!
  • In Lithuanian, y is sorted between i and k.
  • In traditional Spanish ch is treated as a single letter, and sorted between c and d.
  • In Swedish v and w are considered variant forms of the same letter.
  • In German dictionaries, öf would come before of. In phone books the situation is the exact opposite.
