Word for Today

I've been using Google's define function for words I don't know (a habit I'll have to maintain if I'm going to have any success as a writer.)

Today's word is: preterition

Defined as: suggesting by deliberately concise treatment that much of significance is omitted

So, if I say the latest Howard budget treats most young parents as whores, am I using preterition?

Answers in the comments, please.
