Word of the Day - Proleptic

| Comments

I found a word that I like today: proleptic

\Pro*lep”tic\, Proleptical \Pro*lep”tic*al\, a. [Gr. ?: cf. F. proleptique.] 1. Of or pertaining to prolepsis; anticipative. “A far-seeing or proleptic wisdom.” –De Quincey. 2. Previous; antecedent. –Glanvill. 3. (Med.) Anticipating the usual time; – applied to a periodical disease whose paroxysms return at an earlier hour at every repetition. –Dictionary.com

For some odd reason, I really like that word. Proleptic. Yea.
