I have seen the word "prejacent" in many linguistics related papers. However, none of them explains what exactly a prejacent is. Could someone elaborate more on this?

  • Too bad it only means previous or replaced. Pre+[ad]jacent and Post+[ad]jacent could have had useful meanings. – amI Apr 5 '18 at 22:00
