Order!

Chronological order (chronology) = in the order that something really happened:

Craig went to Newcastle, he had a drink of coffee, he then went to look at the things in a street fair. Whilst he was there he saw an old friend so they went for another drink together. That’s what happened in chronological order.

Non chronological order, would be, Craig had a coffee with his friend he met in a street fair, he had a coffee on his own, he went to Newcastle. Or something like that anyway.

Another example could be the albums that Prince released: 1999, Purple Rain, Around the World in a Day, Parade, Sign o The Times (all excellent albums too)

Homophone:
fair = morally correct/or light skinned and with light hair
fare = the cost of a bus/train/aeroplane ticket
faire = something that someone has made, and is selling.

Alphabetical order (the alphabet)

a:Albert Street
b:Bethwell Green
c:Clark Avenue
d:Durham Road
e:Earls Court
f:Freeman Hospital
g:Glee Road

etc

Numerical order:

  1. Do the dishes
  2. Clean the car
  3. Update diary
  4. Make some food
  5. Ring your friend

Actually that’s a numbered list, numerical order would be in ascending (going up) or descending (going down) order:

900
901
902
903
904
905

Date/datal order

01/01/1990
01/01/1991
01/01/2011
01/01/2013

 

“Order! Order!”
Is what the speaker of the house (Houses of Parliament) shouts when he tries to recover order and reasonable behaviour, amongst the buffoons that run this country.

What a bunch of clowns that lot are.
