Sorry, but only comparing words with those that come after it alphabetically doesn't work.

For example, the work 'call' appears in all these words that precede it alphabetically:

abiogenically abiotically academically acerbically achromatically acoustically acrobatically acronymically acrostically actinically adiabatically adrenergically aerobically aerodynamically aeronautically aesthetically agonistically agronomically alchemically alcoholically algebraically algorithmically allegorically allopatrically allosterically allotypically alogically alphabetically altruistically amitotically anacoluthically anaerobically anagogically analogically analytically anaphorically anarchically anatomically anchoritically anecdotically anemically anesthetically angelically animatronically anisotropically anodically antibiotically antically antidromically antigenically antiseptically antithetically aoristically apathetically aperiodically aphetically aphoristically apically apocalyptically apodictically apolitically apologetically apomictically apoplectically aposematically apotropaically aquatically archaically arctically arithmetically aromatically arthritically artistically ascetically aseptically asthmatically astrologically astronautically astronomically astrophysically asymmetrically asymptotically asyndetically atavistically atheistically athletically atmospherically atomically atomistically atypically authentically autistically autocratically autographically automatically autonomically autotrophically axenically axiologically axiomatically ballistically barbarically barometrically basically bathetically bathymetrically beatifically biblically biochemically biogenetically biographically biologically biomechanically birdcall birdcalls bolometrically bombastically botanically buccally bucolically caecally call

And the word 'the' appears in 1300 words that precede it in my 178,000 word dictionary.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
