    Dear Wordsmith,

    Why do people say movie "trailer" instead of "preview" nowadays?

    And why do they call it a trailer? Wouldn't that indicate something AFTER the movie. I didn't look this up in the dictionary because I figured they would give me the definition of the kind of house some people live in.


    Curious & confused
