"Prepone" is a great word - it's the opposite of "postpone". I was wondering if it was beginning to spread around the world at all.
(I hope it surprises no one that this citation is from 1995—eons ago in Internet time).
More recently, in 2008 the Monitor published this article discussing prepone in much more detail.
So it does not appear that prepone has much currency outside of India. I have heard it in my day-to-day business on occasion here in the United States in the software development industry—from my colleagues from India.
The New Oxford American Dictionary doesn't report prepone as existing word. Wiktionary reports is only used in India.
