Subject: good program for sorting large wordlists

Hello, I would like to ask whether someone has experience with good tool to sort large text files with possibilities such as gnu sort. I am using it to sort wordlists but when I tried to sort 11 gb wordlist, it crashed while writing final output file after writing around 7 gb of data  and did not delete some temp files. When I was sorting smaller (2gb) wordlist it took me just about 15 minutes while this 11 gb took 4.5 hours (Intel core I 7 2.6ghz, 12 gb ram, ssd drives).
Could you recommend any better sorting program with similar abylities as gnu sort offers?
