Entry: prenominate (adj.)

In context: "'...that the prenominate oversized infants reputedly do exist, are anomalous, and huge, grow but do not develop, feed on the abundance of annularly available edibles the overgrowth periods in the region represent, do deposit titanically outsized scat, and presumably do crawl thunderously about..."

Definition: Aforementioned.

Other: DFW gets a mention in the usages: 

1994   D. F. Wallace Getting Away in Supposedly Fun Thing (1997) 109   Except of course one problem with the prenominate theory is that there's more than one US, hence more than one State Fair.
