    Question priority

    Priority could be "high" or "low", but could priority be "middle"? Like, the priority of this assignment is "middle"? Thanks a lot!

    Hi Emily

    The word priority is used to give specific attention to something, so therefore we use it to show something is of high or low importance. We don't use it for 'middle' because this is standard, regular...it's not specifically high or low so we don't need to give it special attention. Hope this helps

    Thank you, both!

    Does the second reply to my post means that I could say "the priority of this assignment is medium / urgent"? Could anyone give some examples on using the word "priority"? Thanks a million!
