Etymology 1Edit

From Middle English ere, from Old English ǣr. (adverb, conjunction, & preposition), from Proto-Germanic *airiz comparative of Proto-Germanic *airi (early), from Proto-Indo-European *h₂eyeri (day, morning) (compare Avestan 𐬀𐬫𐬀𐬭 (ayar, day), Gk. ἠέριος (ēérios, at daybreak), see also era). The adverb erstwhile retains the Old English superlative ǣrest (earliest). Cognate with German eher (earlier) and Dutch eer (before, sooner than).
