Default Correct usage of "preseeded"

Gang,

Please educate me on the correct usage of the word "preseeded." Try this. Ask someone to read aloud, "All preseeded actions that handle error conditions are configured with default action of notifying the administrator."

Doesn't "preseeded" sounds like "preceded?" Instead, should I use "pre-seeded?"

Thanks ...

I beleive there's no such word as "preseed".
It should be preceded

I believe the correct form is pre-seeded, this meaning in the above statement that some object was previously seeded/feeded with "actions that handle error conditions"

Cheers!

Talking THIS vs. THAT

Thank you people for your enthusiastic responses. Now

Thanks....

with this and that it's the same as with here and there
this- smth. close
that- smth. comparatively far

parallelism
from Gk. parallelos “side-by-side”

Similarity of structure in a pair or series of related words, phrases, or clauses.

Examples:
parallelism of words:
She tried to make her pastry fluffy, sweet, and delicate.

parallelism of phrases:
Singing a song or writing a poem is joyous.

parallelism of clauses:
Perch are inexpensive; cod are cheap; trout are abundant; but salmon are best.
