    Preliminary - 初步(的) - 基本上就是做某件事情之前必須發生的 or 必須做的一件事

    名詞: What kind of preliminaries are required for this project?

    動詞: What kind of preliminary jobs are required for this project?

    開始這個企畫之前有什麼需要做的初步工作?

    常常會看到的用法:

    preliminary hearing - 預審

    preliminary rounds (運動比賽) - 前賽

    preliminary report - 初步報告

    (preliminary 最常被當作動詞使用)

    Primary - 主要的, 初級的<--比較少使用

    (也是最常被當動詞使用)

    Food was the primary focus of our discussion today.

    今天我們討論的主要重點是食物

    其他可以看到的用法

    Primary school = 初級學校 (小學)

    Primary colours (red, green, blue) = 三原色 (紅綠藍)

    Primarily - 主要的

    Our discussion today was primarily about food

    今天我們的討論主要是關於食物
