"That's a great deal to make one word mean," Alice said in a thoughtful tone. "When I make a word do a lot of work like that," said Humpty Dumpty, "I always pay it extra."

    I came across a word that was new to me the other day - prevised. So I did what I usually do and looked it up.
To previse means to know in advance; foresee; notify in advance; or forewarn.
Prevised therefore means known in advance, imagined beforehnad, or forewarned. 


  1. Since it makes me instantly think of revise, the explanation is... well, almost self-explaining, I would say :-)

  2. Pity I can't previse when I'm writing! Think of the time I'd save revising!
