    Default Which of these accents come first in French: é, è, ê ?

    Hi,
    I'm trying to reorder alphabetically a French glossary and I'm facing the following issue: which one should come first, é, è or ê?

    A mi me paso algo parecido hace un tiempo, pero estuve leyendo algo y segun lo que entendi, tiene que ver con la pronunciacion de cada letra o palabra.

    je n'ai jamais donné considération à ce sujet
    mais votre question m'a intrigué
    et j'ai trouvé ceci sur le web :
    L’ordre alphabétique du français au Québec prend en compte les diacritiques avant la casse1
    1.a (2.à 3.â) [4.æ] 5.b 6.c (7.ç) 8.d 9.e (10.é 11.è 12.ê 13.ë) 14.f 15.g 16.h 17.i (18.î 19.ï) 20.j 21.k 22.l 23.m 24.n 25.o (26.ô) [27.œ] 28.p 29.q 30.r 31.s 32.t 33.u (34.ù 35.û 36.ü) 37.v 38.w 39.x 40.y (41.ÿ) 42.zLes diacritiques sont rangés dans cet ordre : aigu, grave, circonflexe, tréma.

    Great, thanks Frank! That was actually the order we learned in school

    Quel type de liste ? Tu as des exemples ? Je pense à des mots comme "dé" ou "dès" qui pourraient être mal placés.
