Do you ever proceed to get the words proceed and precede confused?
Proceed is when you proceed with a plan. You can proceed to write a book or proceed to climb a tree.Proceed would mean the same thing as ‘go ahead’ or ‘move forward’.
Precede is when something comes before something else. The band preceded the horses in the parade. A mans words precede his actions.
If you use proceed or precede in your writing, I suggest you proceed with caution to ensure that you use them correctly…
