I know I have done this before, but be danged if I can remember how I  
did it.

I want a citation to read "(described in Alter, 2000)"

but if I use \cite[described in]{Alter2000} I get "(Alter, 2000,  
described in)".

So, what is the command that'll give the former? In other words, will  
put the text at the beginning of the citation, not the end?

Oh, I am using apacite for the bib style.
