Subject: PREPONE

I posted to SLLING-L, the Sign Language Linguistics List, to find out about the use of "prepone" in that milieu beyond my
own knowledge. So far I've gotten two replies:


When discussing physical/psychological assessment results, I sometimes also use this sign/term in the context of
developmental delays and it conveys the meaning very well-if not better then the English phrase.

I've used that word for a loooooon time -- 20+ years??? I heard it from Susan Fischer, and thought it was just a clever
neologism! I had NO IDEA it was used elsewhere!
