Alphabetization (Reviewed)

You would do well to heed my advice about avoiding alphabetical order to arrange vocabulary study lists: take the time to organize vocabulary in a more meaningful manner.

Outside of onomatopoeia and a few exceptions, words in English share no correlation between phonology and semantics, thus alphabetical order does absolutely nothing to pass lexical information from short to long-term memory. Alphabetical order for miscellaneous lists would, on the other hand, benefit students that are currently developing critical alphabetic principle skills to learn how to read and write, whether in their native or a foreign language. Unfortunately, the reality for most older students that are already literate in more than one language is that they have as of yet to develop phonemic awareness in the target language.
