comment Is “prepone” being used outside India?
It is used outside of India: Indian students use it with me constantly (I'm a professor in the US). I think it will eventually get thoroughly exported in the same way as "doubt" now has a new meaning because of Indian students.

comment What is the difference between “dominant” and “predominant”?
We can probably just shut down the entire forum then.

comment Is “forwent” used much?
Years after asking this question, I still find it fascinating: "I go, I went, I have gone" have all remained in common usage; "I forgo, I forwent, I have forgone" are likewise common except "forwent" which has been discarded for some reason. The answer above claims it (and it alone in its family?) serves no useful purpose.
