Why is the preposition "from" used with "appeal"? RONR is the only place I've seen that construction. Why is the motion to close debate and vote called "the previous question"? Why is "precedence" pronounced "pree-SEED-n's" in RONR, when it's pronounced "PRESS-uh-d'ns" in other contexts? Are the words distinct in meaning, and if so, how do they differ?
I am a board member of a national organization and need to know the following: If there are grammatical errors in our bylaws do I need to have a motion within the board or the entire membership body to make these grammatical changes? Content will not be changed. I am hoping the secretary can simply make the changes without a vote of any kind. Thoughts?
