Prefixes & Alphabetical Order

Postby samuelkharpatin2b » Sun Mar 05, 2017 7:08 pm

I know we don't take into consideration the prefixes di- tri- etc. when applying alphabetical order, by do we take into consideration the prefixes iso- and tert- when applying the alphabetical rules?

Thank you.

The prefixes cyclo-, iso-, and neo- are considered part of the group name so they are
alphabetized.
Ignore the prefixes di-, tri-¸tetra-, tert-, sec-, etc., when alphabetizing.
