For questions about the order of coordinated words in short lists.

This question is about the order of coordinated words when there is no definite, obvious sort criterion (if there is such a criterion, like alphabetical order, use the tag instead). Such a list might contain only two or three words. When asking specifically about expressions where a word order has become conventional and "fixed", the tag may be used.
