I notice that EL&U currently has a tag labeled 'antedecent', and that seven of the fifteen questions that carry this tag include the word antedecent in their headline. for example, Antecedent of "velocity u" in "particles moving in a medium with macroscopic velocity u". Is this a typo for antecedent, or is some notion of language and usage "before decency" at play here?
I actually tried to go into the tag Wiki to change the spelling of the tag to 'antecedent', but found that I didn't have access to it. Any thoughts on how I (or others) should proceed? (I note that there is also an 'antecedents' tag that has twelve associated questions. Maybe the simplest thing would be for me to go in and replace all of the 'antedecent' tags with 'antecedents' tags, and then correct any related typos. But we would still want to delete the 'antedecent' tag itself, wouldn't we?)
