What is the definition of "preferred" in Chapter XX

Recommended Posts

I see language in RONR disciplinary procedures using the word "preferred" and it puzzles me as no definition of that word seems to meet the context - is it supposed to be "proferred" which is typical legal language?  Or is this some more archaic use of "preferred"?

 

Gracias.

Thank you!!  I had a brain burp and was just googling "preferred charges".  

 

And I learned that I have misheard for years and many times when I had believed the word used was "proffer" it is actually "prefer."  I bet this is fairly common egg corn.

It's the only example of egg corn that I have ever heard of. I don't know if that meets the definition of "common."
