Nancy Gandhi at under the fire star makes note of an interesting word used in Indian English:
to prepone – example: The Friday meeting has been preponed to Thursday morning. (This word is succinct and useful. It deserves a place in English languages everywhere. I urge everyone who reads this to adopt it and help it grow.)
The word ‘prepone’ is found in The New Oxford Dictionary of English, published 1998. It is listed as being Indian (from India) and is defined as: to bring forward to an earlier date or time. Example given: The publication date has been preponed from July to June.
So there we have it: the word is listed in a dictionary, it’s well formed, and it’s unquestionably useful; I hereby welcome it to the English vocabulary!
