Penultimate- the last lap remainsIn school after declaration of the results of sports events the non-winners used to tease themselves pointing one another as first/second/third; and then after a pause add "from last".That meant they completed last or next to last, etc.
Later we learnt the one-word for next to last position, as penultimate; that is, last but one. It was still later that I knew about antepenultimate and preantepenultimate. But I had not seen them used much anywhere though penultimate is often used.
Now why I remembered this word is today is the fourteenth day of the fifteen day thread-a-day challenge. Just one more day remains in the fifteen days schedule and one thread remaining to be posted after this thread.
So now we are in the penultimate stage of this challenge and just a lap remains to the finishing point.Cheers to all to complete the last lap too.
