Spanish term or phrase: hierarchy and a/an LMN
I need to know the verb, if it exists, for hierarchy. My dic indicates no. Moreover, is hierarchisation wrong? What about hierarchism? With LMN (which is an invented example)the problem is which article to use wwhen the acronym is used ... a LMN (when L, for example, means Leading) or an LMN (given the vocalised pronunciation).

Explanation:
You can say "establish the hierarchy" it it suits the context. Regarding the article, I would use a or an, based on how it sounds when you read aloud. In this case, an LMN. Hope it helps!

Hierarchize


Explanation:
According to Webster's Third International Dictionary, you can use Hierarchize which is defined as "to arrange hierarchically". There's also an expression coined by C.H. Page "hierarchized systems of organization".
Hierarchization (American English) is the act or process of establishing a hierarchy, also, the system or authority of a hierarchy/the quality or state of being a hierarchy. Hope this helps!
