Alphabetization Practice

Directions: Put the following nonce variations of the word Lakȟóta in alphabetical order. Here's a hint: don't look at whole word, rather, concentrate on pieces of the words. For example, Lakȟó- comes before Láȟo- and -t- comes before -t’-, therefore Lakȟóta comes before Lákȟota, and Lákȟot’a comes before Lákȟot’a.

At first seems like a lot to sort through, but the data gets more and more manageable as you cross out the words you have already used.

Lakótȟa
Lak’ótȟa
Lakhót’a
Lakóta
Lakótha
Lakóthaŋ
Lákhotȟa
Láŋk’ot’a
Lakhótȟa
Lák’ot’a

1. Lakóta 2. 3.
4. 5. 6.
7. 8. 9.
10.
