| | How to use the verb, to regress?
Hi everyone! I am a new forum member. I have recently learned a new word, to regress.
Longman Dictionary states that to regress means to go back to an earlier and worse condition.
I would like to use it in two examples.
(1) Last year, Joe worked very hard to improve his grade average from a C to a B standing. This year, he is regressing to the lower grade average because he is not working as hard.
(2) The number of goals John's soccer team scores varies from ten to ninety per season. Based on the game results in the first three months, he thinks his team will regress to an unsatisfactory performance.
Am I using the word, to regress, correctly? Thank you very much for your help.
