EtymologyEdit

The origin is uncertain.[1] Perhaps from Proto-Indo-European *postor-, from *pos (by, about, around, beside), and cognate with Latin posterus.[2][3][4] Alternatively, from Proto-Indo-European *sterh₃- (to spread).[5][6][4] Has also been compared to Ancient Greek ὕστερος (hústeros).[7]

Usage notesEdit

The Hellenizing School used this post-classically as a prefix corresponding to Ancient Greek ὑπο- (hupo-) and κατα- (kata-), e.g. ստորագրեմ (storagrem) = ὑπογράφω (hupográphō), ստորասեմ (storasem) = κατάφημι (katáphēmi).
