Sorting

This sorting algorithm gives the correct order for all the Sámi languages, and for Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish. The algorithm has two levels. Level one sorting is indicated with the character ";" as separator in the table below. Level two sorting is invoked when level one sorting results in identity, and is indicated by parenthesis and the "," separator.

Aa (Àà); Áá; Ââ; Bb; Cc (Çç); Čč; Ʒʒ; Ǯǯ; Dd; Đđ (Ðð); Ee (Éé, Èè, Êê, Ëë); Ff; Gg; Ǧǧ; Ǥǥ; Hh; H-caronh-caron; Ii (Íí, Ìì, Îî, Ïï, İı); Jj; Kk; Ǩǩ; Ll; Mm; Nn; Ŋŋ (Ññ); Oo (Óó, Òò, Ôô); Õõ; Pp; Qq; Rr; Ss (ß); Šš; Tt; Ŧŧ; Uu (Úú, Ùù, Ûû); Vv; Ww; Xx; Yy (Ýý, Ÿÿ, Üü); Zz; Žž; Þþ; Ææ; Øø; Åå; Ää; Öö;

Sorting algorithms for each of the six Sámi languages can be found under the respective languages at The Alphabets of Europe.

A sorting of the full 8-bit space of ISO-IR 197 is given in a separate document, as is a sorting of the 8-bit space of Macintosh Sámi Standard. Note that ISO-IR 197 is replaced by the code table WS2 on most PCs.

Note also that the ISO-IR 197 sorting has the sorting of ISO/IEC 10646 as its default (non-alphabetic) sorting, whereas the Macintosh Sámi sorting has the Macintosh sorting as its default string.
