Is there a priority list for the assembley of search engine operators in strings (e.g. like those in software programming)?

Lately I started to wonder whether or not there might exist a general priority scheme for the assembley of search engine operators within strings. While asking this, I have the priority rankings in mind which software programmers use to keep their operator priorities straight. I mean obviously those operators defining what shall be included in a search are to be placed before those defining what shall be excluded. But is there a certain order for the arrangement of advanced operators like intitle: inurl: intext: and so on?

I appreciate any ideas and hints!

do you mean like an order of operations for search terms in a string?
Hey Kameron!

Thanks for clarifying my question, that's exactly what I'm looking for, an order of operations for the search query syntax.

Something like the operator precedence rules known from school math (the BODMAS rule):

Brackets
Of
Divide
Multiply
Add
Subtract

So do you follow a certain order when creating your string?
