A prequel is a work that portrays events which include the structure, conventions, and/or characters of a previously completed narrative, but occur at an earlier time. The word is a neologism, formed as a portmanteau from pre-, meaning before, and sequel, a work which takes place after a previous one. While the word is an etymological aberration ("sequel" derives from "sequence" – Latin: sequor – there is no such thing as a "prequor") its meaning is easily grasped and it has passed into common usage. A better term would be protosequel, as adopted in other languages, like the Spanish "protosecuela". A neologism is a word, term, or phrase which has been recently created (or coined), often to apply to new concepts, to synthesize pre-existing concepts, or to make older terminology sound more contemporary. ... A portmanteau (IPA: ) is a word or morpheme that fuses two or more words or word parts to give a combined or loaded meaning. ... For other uses, see Sequel (disambiguation). ...
