Thanks again, but what I'm looking for is that every word staring with ỳ comes before any word starting with ỷ, so even that sort order isn't quite right, Also why are all the entries with ỷ not together?. Instead of
ỳ :
ỷ :
ỳ ạch :
ỷ eo :
yêu nhau :
yêu quí :
ỷ lại :
ỷ thế :

should be

ỳ :
ỳ ạch :
ỷ :
ỷ eo :
ỷ lại :
ỷ thế :
yêu nhau :
yêu quí :
This is how all paper dictionaries do it, regardless of which order they use for the tone marks. I'm beginning to wonder if I'm the only person who's ever cared about this before :)

By the way, the reason I'm doing this is that I'm planning to release a large (>50,000 words) Vietnamese-English dictionary (as a single UTF8 file) under the CC license (essentially free to use for any purpose) and I'd like to make it available in "properly" sorted order. I've done similar projects for Chinese, Esperanto, and Interlinga already (see, but those are a lot easier to sort :)

Any other ideas? Thanks again for the help!

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
