  Ha ha, CR.   Very good one!

  Grammar and prefix-wise, we would be then be post-born...or pre-dead, he he!

 

  It´s just convention, you know; if a group often use a word, like in this particular case, there are two sides of the question.     So, it is useful to the learner (like Nina and me) to learn the vocabulary on the subject, to take sides or to strike a conversation and not being puzzled in the process.

   Seems like the word isn´t used in medicine, unless it is in an informal way.

   Anyway, thanks for your insight.
