    Preantepenultimate is fourth item from the end of a list. Is there a word for the fifth in English?

    Preantepenultimate is fourth...
    http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/preantepenultimate

    Third is antepenultimate.
    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/antepenultimate

    And, the word for fifth is "Jack Daniels."

    Preantepenulitmate means third from the end.

    Sorry, I meant from the end of a list.

    4. Preantepenultimate
    3. Antepenultimate
    2. Penultimate (paene ultimus = almost last. Like in paene insula)
    1.Ultimate

    It doesn't take a quantum leap to figure out why that although the headlines in the US said the in the "Two Man Race" the American runner beat the penultimate Russian to the finish line, the Russian paper said "American Runner Comes in Second to Last"icon_wink.gif
