I'm writing an essay at the moment and remembered something that I have wondered about for a while. When arranging words together in a sentence is there a name or a method for the order in which you do it?
For example "Health and Safety" sounds better than "Safety and Health". I understand that this might be because we have always heard it as "Health and Safety" and any other way sounds weird but I also encounter this with words that don't have an established order. They don't have to be separated by "and" either I sometimes find lists far more pleasing to read in one order than another. So is there a name or method behind this or am I crazy?
