Usage notes[edit]

It is relatively uncommon to prefix post- to native German words, for which nach- is preferred. While a compound postmittelalterlich ("post-mediaeval") is not altogether impossible, one will normally use nachmittelalterlich. Post- is common with learned words, such as postmodern or posttraumatisch.
