German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

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.

Pronunciation[edit]

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