please help me to make sure about the correctness of the following sentences:


Our team targets error-prone benefit applications containing suspicious information. The team’s goal is to prevent ineligible persons from receiving social benefits, thereby saving tax dollars. The question is how one can calculate costs and benefits of a prevention strategy in order to estimate net saving.

According to etymology dictionaries, the word of prevention has Latin roots; a combination of prae that means “before” and venire that means, “to come.” Therefore, in the context of social benefit programs we should define prevention as something that comes before in order to hinder occurrence of fraud, wrongdoing, abuse, or error. Keeping this meaning of precedence and primacy in mind, one can distinguish three types of prevention in terms of benefit programs.

We usually say a person is error-prone, not an application.

Our team targets error-prone benefit applications containing suspicious information. The team’s goal is to prevent ineligible persons from receiving social benefits, thereby saving tax dollars. The question is how one can calculate the costs and benefits of a prevention strategy in order to estimate net saving.

According to etymology dictionaries, the word of prevention has Latin roots. It is a combination of prae, meaning that means“before” and venire,, meaning that means,“to come.” Therefore, in the context of social benefit programs we should define prevention as something that comes before in order to hinder occurrence of fraud, wrongdoing, abuse, or error. Keeping this meaning of precedence and primacy in mind, one can distinguish three types of prevention in terms of benefit programs.

Where did the idea of 'primacy' suddenly come from?
