EtymologyEdit

From Middle High German after, from Old High German aftero ("rear; behind; below"; compare Old High German aftar (after, preposition, adverb)), from Proto-Germanic *after, *aftiri (more aft, further behind), from Proto-Indo-European *apotero (further behind, further away), comparative form of *apo- (off, behind). Compare English after, Dutch achter, Danish efter.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ˈaftɐ/ (standard)
  • IPA(key): /ˈaːftɐ/ (quite common; via English after, given the word’s infrequence in speech)
  • (file)
