@isthmus_x Got it. And I saw that you used “predominant” in your second sentence, but I’d use “dominant” there if I wanted to mean that. So can you explain to me the difference between those two words a bit?
Pre- You probably know that this means “before“, but it also means “1st“.
Both dominant and predominant are words that we have taken from the Latin language, and in the Latin Roman culture they had an important difference.
If you and I fight with swords today, and you win, you have shown your dominance – you are the winner because you have dominated me. But, if we fight again tomorrow, I might win – I will be dominant.
To be “of the first dominance“ means that you always win. There doesn’t need to be a battle because everybody knows that you are going to win, because you are so clearly and provedly dominant. It’s not an issue.
@isthmus_x Alright. Your explanation is so helpful! So “dominant” sounds like it’s more powerful than other things for the time being, things could change at any time though, then maybe the other thing is dominant. But “predominant” has a more absolute meaning, it’s just like stating an obvious truth. Thanks a ton!
