I have been utilizing the sorting tool for this, but there is one reference, with a diacritic in the name, that I cannot figure out.
I have successfully put in “al” “ibn” and the like to be omitted when alphabettically sorting my Arabic names. However, “al-ʿAynī” has a diacritic in front of the A, and it consistently sorts the name at the end, when it needs to be in the A’s.
Is there a way I can get endnote to ignore the “al-ʾ”? I tried inputting that, just the diacritic, and a few other ways with no success.
