Would you know where the long s goes alphabetically? I've wondered that for years since I first saw Herd's glossary. Although it didn't seem to ever start a word. And in some songs, the same word might be used once with it +s then as 'ss'.

Yer right there, Jack. We lived in Edinburgh about three years before we could say Menzies Book Store without pausing and thinking about it first.
