In Latin, how would you refer to the concept of sorting events according to temporal proximity (i.e. most recent, or nearest to now, first); as opposed to sorting by priority, or starting from the beginning and proceeding in chronological order.
I thought something along the lines of proximus tempus or proxima temporis, but they seem to translate to simply "next time".
A quick example to help illustrate
I hope this is a helpful example. Imagine something to the effect of:
Person#1: "Tell me what happened."
Person#2: "I wouldn't even know where to begin."
The response could be to:
- Start from the beginning or first event.
- Start with the most urgent, important, significant or highest priority event.
- Start with the most recent or next upcoming event.
