It's like a cross between infanticide and anticipate.. maybe it should mean when you know about an infanticide in advance.

sionnach commented on the word infanticipate
Hmm. Well, that's one possible explanation, I suppose. But we still use participate, despite its resemblance to patricide.
It does suggest a number of similar compound verbs, though, e.g.,
exuberanticipate - to look forward to something with extraordinary gusto
abundanticipate - to expect a bounteous feast
malignanticipate - to look forward to the fruition of one's evil plots for world domination
pennanticipate - to be confident that one's team will be victorious
pendanticipate - to expect jewelry for one's anniversary
dormanticipate - to look forward to one's nap
croissanticipate - to look forward to one's breakfast
maupassanticipate - to be expecting one's neighbor, the famous short story writer, to call
elephanticipate - to warn of a stampede
transplanticipate - to be on the waiting list for a kidney donor
etc etc etc ad bloody nauseam..

Adjective: Pregnant. Generally not used anymore, probably because it sounds so much like infanticide.
