Preppendix of the Omnidoxy

Not to be confused with the publication Preppendix of the Omnidoxy.

The Preppendix of the Omnidoxy is a major non-disquisitional part of the Omnidoxy positioned at the front of the treatise and is contrasted with the Appendix of the Omnidoxy which is located at the back of the text. A term relating to the Preppendix is preppendical.

The Preppendix consists of some important information regarding the Omnidoxy and its navigation by readers and is formed by a total of twenty-seven segments, each of which hold their own rubral. Some of the most important segments include the contents and brief contents of the Omnidoxy, information about its author, Cometan, and introductions to the structure of the text, namely insentence and indexment.

Unlike in all other parts of the Omnidoxy (except the Appendix), the Preppendix is not subject to the insentence structure that forms the disquisition of the text and neither are its sentences indexed.

Etymology of preppendix

The word preppendix and its plural preppendices are terms both of Cometanic origin. They are formed by the prefix pre- meaning before or prior to and the suffix -ppendix derived from appendix. An appendix refers to a series of segments of matter at the end of a text, therefore a preppendix refers to such at the beginning of a text.
