There is a new word I learned the other day that is English and used here in India, but which I have never heard used outside this country. That word is “prepone”, and it is the opposite of “postpone” which we use all the time. As you might imagine, to prepone something is to move it to an earlier time. I found this out when my flight was briefly preponed (before being postponed). I love this word and am going to introduce it into American English with a vengeance.
