English - Etymology

From Middle English _after_, from Old English _æfter_ (“after, along, behind, through, throughout, during, following, in consequence of, according to, for the purpose of, by means of, about, in pursuit of, for”), from Proto-Germanic _*after_, _*aftiri_ (“more aft, further behind”), from Proto-Indo-European _*apotero_ (“further behind, further away”), comparative form of _*apo-_ (“off, behind”); see also Proto-Indo-European _*h₂epo_ (“off, away”) and English _aft_, _of_, _off_. Cognate with Scots _efter_ (“after”), North Frisian _efter_ (“after, behind”), Dutch/Low German _achter_ (“behind”), German _After_ (“anus”), Danish & Swedish _efter_ (“after”), Norwegian _etter_ (“after”), Icelandic _eftir_ (“after”), Icelandic _aftur_ (“back, again”). The Proto-Indo-European is the source of _apo-_ (“away, without”), from Ancient Greek _ἀπό_ (apó); comparative is also the source of Ancient Greek _ἀπωτέρω_ (apōtérō, “further”). The Irish usage to indicate recent completion of an activity is a calque of the Irish collocation _Tá mé tar éis/i ndiaidh..._ ("I have just...").
