Etymology

1534, "accelerate," from L. anticipatus, pp. of anticipare "take (care of) ahead of time," from ante "before" (see ante) + capere "to take" (see capable). Used in the sense of "expect, look forward to" since 1749, but anticipate has an element of "prepare for, forestall" that should prevent its being used as a synonym for expect.
