Cut from entry
I cut the following comment from the entry:
- You say that anticipate and expect are used interchangeably. Surely anticipate is used when expect is meant, but not the other way round. Nobody uses expect to mean "take action in the expectation of."
A possible tautology
Sorry, but given the first definition, isn't "To anticipate and prevent the duke's purpose." a tautology? I myself personally think that "to prevent or preclude by prior action" hits the mark a little better as a definition.

Is anticipate a borrowed word in English
In the notes that accompany the word "antipasto", the notes state that English words that use the ante- prefix do not spell them as "anti-" in English with the exception of borrowed words such as "antipasto" and "anticipate". Is "anticipate" truly a borrowed word? Anyone have some insight on this? Spawn777 (talk) 03:40, 24 November 2013 (UTC)
