abovementioned (not comparable)

Usage notesEdit

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 abovementioned two papers instead of the two abovementioned papers.
