I Love Learning

I stumbled upon a new word today. New for me anyway.

Penultimate

ADJECTIVE

  1. last but one in a series of things; second last.
  2. “the penultimate chapter of the book”

In linguistics. The term penultimate is used in linguistics and in grammar books to refer to a particular syllable in a word: the penult or penultima. This is the second to last syllable in any word, such as “la” in “syllable”. 

What is the meaning of ‘penultimate step’?

High Jump Penultimate Step Definition. The penultimate step or penultimate stride is the second-to-last step before an athlete takes off! It’s used extensively in the long jump and high jump. Many expert coaches believe the penultimate step is part of the jumpers takeoff. 

What does the name penultimate mean?

Definition of penultimate. 1 : next to the last the penultimate chapter of a book. 2 : of or relating to the next to the last syllable of a word a penultimate accent.

Is there a word for after penultimate and ultimate?

“Properly used, penultimate means ‘next to last,’ as the penultimate game of the season and the penultimate syllable in a word. It is sometimes used incorrectly where the word ultimate is called for, especially when meaning ‘representing or exhibiting the greatest possible development or sophistication,’ as in This car is the penultimate in engineering and design .

Why is this important? I have no idea but I like it. I learned something new today. I’m pretty happy with that. Have a nice day…..and tomorrow too….

Props to good old bing…lol…maybe google is not the devil…
