Sorting on a phrase ignoring stop words

I understand that we can sort a text field (Eg: title of a book)
alphabetically only if it is mapped as "not_analyzed". Is it possible to
ignore stop words in the text during sorting?
Does ES provide any such functionality or our app should index the field
after removing all stop words and store as "not_analyzed"?

Thanks in advance
