Sorting Queries


This is also pretty straightforward. Just choose [Sort] from the list box and press [Go!]. Then you specify how to sort the lines. At the moment, there is only a primary sort option, sorting either node, left, or right within a span of 10 words.

For practice, try sorting the lines you got for lovely (see page one) according to (1) the 1st word to the left, and (2) the 1st word to the right.
