An accurate description of this list so far.

I like this word. Most useful, I would think, in describing something arranged in such an order. Even then, though, more of a curiosity than anything else.

abecedarian, a. and n.

A. adj.

1. Of or pertaining to the alphabet; marked with the alphabet; arranged in alphabetical order, as abecedarian psalms, like the 119th.

2. Occupied in learning the alphabet, or pertaining to one so occupied.

B. n. [The adj. used elliptically.]

1. One occupied in learning the alphabet. In U.S. the regular school term.

2. One engaged in teaching the alphabet and merest rudiments of instruction.
