Title: Chronological? Or is there a better word?
Post by: eallen99 on July 16, 2011, 12:56:34 PM
Can chronological be used to describe magazines that are arranged by date of issue? Ordinarily it's used for time.

Does a better word come to mind for anyone out there?

"Chronological" is fine, girl. In referring to a stack of magazines, for instance, they would be arranged in ascending or descending chronological order.

OCD, anyone?  (http://forums.snapstream.com/vb/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif)

I agree chronological is fine. An alternative would be "by date" or "by publication date."

You could say "catalogued."
