Let $\struct {S_1, \preccurlyeq_1}$ and $\struct {S_2, \preccurlyeq_2}$ be ordered sets.

The lexicographic order $\struct {S_1, \preccurlyeq_1} \otimes^l \struct {S_2, \preccurlyeq_2}$ on $\struct {S_1, \preccurlyeq_1}$ and $\struct {S_2, \preccurlyeq_2}$ is the ordered set $\struct {T, \preccurlyeq_l}$ where:

$T := S_1 \times S_2$, that is, the Cartesian product of $S_1$ and $S_2$
$\preccurlyeq_l$ is the relation defined on $T$ as:
$\tuple {x_1, x_2} \preccurlyeq_l \tuple {y_1, y_2} \iff \tuple {x_1 \prec_1 y_1} \lor \paren {x_1 = y_1 \land x_2 \preccurlyeq_2 y_2}$
