ordering field containin non alpha numeric character

I want to order a text field which contains some words which begin with
a single quote, if however I perform the following query, the single
quote seems to be neglected:

select arabic, dutch from woordenlijst order by arabic;

After this query the words are ordered as if there _wasn't_ a single
quote in the beginning.
e.g. I get:
'arn eeuw
arrajul de man
'ashal gemakkelijker
How can I make a list of words with all text field values which start
with a single quote grouped together.
You may wonder why I have words starting with a single quote in the
list? It is just a standard practice to transcribe the arabic letter
hamza that way.
