Above

above should not be used for “more than.”

Above  is an adverb, not an adjective. Say “The address given above,” not “The above  address;” the “foregoing section,” not the “above  section.”

above : Inelegantly used as a noun by ellipsis of some noun as “He wrote the above,” for “the above phrase.” A more objectionable use is as an adjective; as, “I submit the above facts” for “I submit the above -mentioned facts.” The use of the word “foregoing” or the more legal expression “before-mentioned” would better meet the case. Lamb, always inclined to be humorous, ridicules the expression by referring to “the above boys and the below boys.”
