I want to describe a situation that happened two levels earlier. I use the bash shell to navigate through directories.
Say I started at the directory
/home, and then I moved to the directory
/home/Downloads, and finally I moved to
Now I'll describe how to navigate to earlier directories:
To go to the previous directory type
And to go to the previous of previous directory type
As you notice, previous of previous sounds odd.
Is there a replacement word for "previous of previous"? Or how would you paraphrase it to make it sound grammatical?
