Next to Last or Penultimate :



To confuse your readers, use the term “penultimate,” which means “next to last,” but which most people assume means “the very last.”


And if you really want to baffle them, use “antepenultimate” to mean “third from the end.”


Many people also mistakenly use “penultimate” when they mean “quintessential” or “archetypical.”
