aforesaid

aforesaid

English

Adjective

aforesaid (not comparable)

  1. Of a previously stated list, the earlier of the list items, usually the first in two or three mentioned list items.

Usage notes

When it modifies a noun phrase, it is generally preceded by the definite article the, and the combination functions as a determiner rather than a simple adjective. You can put it before a cardinal like the aforesaid two articles instead of the two aforesaid articles.
