    I am wondering if anyone has the rules for where apostrophes fall when you are alphabetizing words.

    In particular,

    its
    it's

    I thought it was it's first, since it is like "it is" and I thought that would come before its. But the teacher says its is first.

    Just curious what the official rule is and what is says about how you treat an apostrophe.

    I don't know if Microsoft is the authority but when I sorted these words with Excel, this is the order in which they appeared:

    its
    it's
    who's
    whose

    Does that help?

    Thanks, Deb. I figured out what the correct order is, but I was curious as to how that rule was determined, or what the actual rule says.
