    precedent of / for

    Hi,

    Is there any precedent of a 4-month-old product getting a price drop? $30 may seem insignificant but if the 32GB has dropped $70, and the LTE $100...wow. That's serious.

    If 'precedent for' is used in stead in this context, does it convey the same meaning?

    I guess it means a different thing.

    I think that "Is there any precedent for a 4-month-old product getting a price drop?" is asking for any justification for a price drop.

    Thanks in advance.

    "Precedent of" is unnatural in this context/construction.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you, Emsr2d2.

    I'm afraid I could not understand what you mean.

    Are you saying that "precedent for" makes sense in this context?

    Thanks in advance.

    That is what ems is suggesting.
