In English, how do you name someone clearing the way in a specific science, art, or the like?
Thanks a lot.
Or 'trail-blazer', 'avant-garde, the same word anglicized - 'vanguard' - ... In the world of IT, it's 'early-adopter'. There's also a word that is almost (if not completely) archaic, but is preserved in the expression 'harbinger* of doom'.
PS * - with a /ʤ/
I never knew that vanguard came from avant-garde. Thank you!
