Etymology 2 edit

Relic locative case of Proto-Indo-European *h₂ól-h₁n- (that, previous time) (< *h₂el- (alien, other)), cognate with Latin ōlim (at that time). Suffix perhaps identical with n-extension of Lithuanian pérnai (last year), Latvian pērn (last time), Proto-Germanic *fernaz (recent, previous). According to some interpretations, may be a 0-grade of the root that has yielded Ancient Greek ἕνος (hénos, former time).

Adverb edit
