Say you have a list containing:
some movie some movie 2 the some movie the third movie another movie the normal movie
By normal sorting the list would end up like:
another movie some movie some movie 2 the normal movie the some movie the third movie
However, I have seen some apps/websites that sort them like this:
another movie the normal movie some movie the some movie some movie 2 the third movie
Basically sorting by ignoring
the and sorting by the actual name and not "the". Some places I see does this with
an too when it is first in the title.
My question: Which of these sorting methods are to prefer? Should they be sorted by the first letter no matter what, or should it take into consideration that things like
the [x] doesn't have a "real" word (The cannot be said to be an object, action or describe the object - it defines whether it is a random or a specific item). So should
an be ignored when sorting lists when it is the first word?
