Etymology[edit]

Borrowing from German erst.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈer.ste/, /ˈɛɾ.stɛ/

Adverb[edit]

erste

  1. (of time) not before, not until (then), only (not earlier than), for the first time
    Me venos erste morge.
    I won't come before tomorrow.

Usage notes[edit]

*ne ante cannot be used in place of erste, since *ne ante would be a preposition just like ante, not an adverb. "Me venos *ne ante morge" would be totally gibberish since the *ne ante would effect the adverb (morge), not the verb (venos). Instead, one could use "Me venos morge, ne ante", which would be correct.
