So someone who comes after? What would it be?
Thanks I should have thought of that. Thats the word I am looking for.
What's the opposite of "thesaurus"?
Ooh. But we can be more absolutist than this!
Take it back to its roots -- Pre as latin for before and Decessor, rooted in decessus for decease. So, predecessor becomes "One who dies before" (or, more literally, one who retires from the village before).
So, opposites. Post as a latin prefix for after, and Animatus, a root for giving life to.
So, how about "Postanimator?" Or, if we want to be sticklers for standard English word construction, "Postanimated."
Now use it in a sentence.
When I read the topic title on the front page "successor" came to mind. Not sure if its entirely right but it certainly feels it.
I am not related to this person I am talking about. So some of the words here do not work. It is in a technical position. (poems for English)
Replacement? Substitute? Locum?
Any of them any good?
