Online dictionaries I have consulted are ambiguous on this. Does 'to prioritise' something mean just to give something a priority value (eg. Low) or to set that value to 'High' (or both)?
In many technical/project management fields, it is important to identify if a task's priority has been assessed. Until then, it could be said to be in an 'un-prioritised' state (not 'de-prioritised', which implies that a previously set value of priority has been reduced).
If 'to prioritise' strictly means 'to assign a value of priority', then what is the term for increasing the level of priority. Likewise, if the priority is un-set (not reduced), has it been 'un-prioritised' (as I referred to above), or maybe 'aprioritised'?
