"Dictionary order" depends on what kind of information in the dictionary.
For example, we use complex sorting algorithm for 'Kanji' letter dictionary.
However, for language dictionary (Japanese-Japanese dictionary),
we use pronunciation order. But this is impossible to decide
by program since each 'Kanji' letter have usually
3-4 (sometimes more) completely different pronunciation only to be
decided by the context in principle.
