Preternatural stands generally for supernatural, because we suppose that that which is praeter naturam is also supra naturam. Yet the former stands sometimes for unnatural, praeter naturam being the synonym of contraa nacturam. Neither praeternaturale nor supernaturale, or, as some say, supernaturale, is a good Latin word. They are, at least, not to be found in the classics.
