Meaning of PROVIDED

Pronunciation:  pru'vIdid

 
Webster's 1913 Dictionary
 
 Definition: 
\Pro*vid"ed\, conj.
On condition; by stipulation; with the understanding; if; --
usually followed by that; as, provided that nothing in this
act shall prejudice the rights of any person whatever.

      Provided the deductions are logical, they seem almost
      indifferent to their truth.              --G. H. Lewes.

Note: This word is strictly a participle, and the word being
      is understood, the participle provided agreeing with
      the whole sentence absolute, and being equivalent to
      this condition being previously stipulated or
      established.
