Adjective[edit]

abovementioned (not comparable)

  1. (literary) mentioned above
    • 1881, "The Public Records of the Colony of Connecticut [1636-1776]", Connecticut, James Hammond Trumbull, Connecticut General Assembly, p. 543

Usage notes[edit]

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.
