Do you mean dependant instead? Dependency is often used to express the inverse relationship, i.e. A is a dependency of B, B is a dependant of A.

comment Word for opposite of *prerequisite*? Something that is possible because of another thing?
I agree that postrequisite, like the similarly non-standard prepone, can be easily understood, but I'd prefer something that is used more widely, something more standard. Besides, it has a slightly different meaning - "that which is required to be done after" - than what I want.

comment Word for opposite of *prerequisite*? Something that is possible because of another thing?
@Mazura There are many different ways to construct opposites, or antonyms. I agree "opposite" is imprecise, so I provided some examples. Another "opposite" to prerequisite is the made-up postrequisite (something that must be done afterwards).

comment Single word for 'being one step ahead of others'
It's not clear what meaning you are looking for. Literally one step ahead, as in walking/running? One step ahead in a process? Or simply being more advanced in a quantitative way?

comment Is there an English idiom for trying to do two things at the same time and failing at both of them due to splitting your effort?
But Bilbo did not say this because he was doing too many things. Rather the opposite: he was craving adventure.
