    Part of speech: noun

    Definition: An ancient Greek figure of speech used to introduce a
                subject by claiming not to introduce it. Usually used
		by a speaker to introduce something that would be
		impolitic to introduce directly.

    Example: Today, on the PLUG mailing list, J.P. used praeteritio to
	     spill gasoline on an extinguished flame war about
	     automobile transmissions. Owners of all types of cars
	     promptly ran J.P. off the road at the bottom of a hill on
	     422 West.
