I should know this, but I don't.

 

In priority sequencing, if the 若い ID no. is given priority, is that the lowest number or the most recent (which tends to be the highest)?

 

Thanks,

 

Warren

If you are referring to 若い順, this would be “ascending order” according to the following page.

This seems to make sense because younger people have a smaller number as their age, so when put in order from youngest to oldest, their ages go from smaller to larger numbers.

This does not have necessarily have any connection to priority
sequencing, but generally, 番号の若いID would be an ID with a
lower/smaller number, not one which was assigned most recently. However,
it is conceivable that, in some context, 若い could do be used to
designate "most recent".

As a concrete example of the potential ambiguity I alluded to, the
author of the above post uses "一番古い年月日のデータ" synonymously to "
年月日が一番若いデータ".

I often wonder about the words 前 and 後. The past is a head of us, and the
future is behind us. (What was the title of "Back to the Future" in
Japanese? The English title was probably just 当たり前 to them!)

Yeah, those words are weird, maybe in many languages. In English we say “the future lies before us” but also “those who came before us.”
