[Middle English folowen, from Old English folgian.]

Synonyms: follow, succeed, ensue, result, supervene. These verbs mean to come after something or someone. Follow, which has the widest application, can refer to coming after in time or order, as a consequence or result, or by the operation of logic: Night follows day. If you disregard the doctor's orders, a relapse will follow. Though he disapproves of violence, it doesn't follow that he won't defend himself. To succeed is to come next after another in time or order, especially in planned order determined by considerations such as rank, inheritance, or election: "The son of a mandarin has no prescriptive right to succeed his father" (H.G. Wells). The heir apparent succeeded to the throne. Ensue applies to what follows something, usually as a consequence or by way of logical development: If a forest fire cannot be extinguished, devastation is sure to ensue. Result implies that what follows is caused by what has preceded: Failure to file an income tax return can result in a fine. Supervene, in contrast, refers to the coming after of a thing that has little relation to what has preceded and that is often unexpected: "A bad harvest supervened. Distress reached its climax" (Charlotte Brontë).

Usage Note: As follows (not as follow) is the established form of the idiom, no matter whether the noun that precedes it is singular or plural: The regulations are as follows.
