Time 4.2 - Words for the past

We'll go over the most important German time adverbs that refer to the various points in the past. Also: what you think "früher" is and what it actually is :)

Vocab:

gerade, vorhin, kürzlich, vor kurzem, früher,ebe


Word Family

This root was essentially a pointer to a presence that was not yourself.

this, that here

It could be a person or thing, but also a place or a time.
Here’s an overview over the relatives

  • he, him, his
  • her
  • it (used to be “hit”)
  • here
  • hither
  • cis-
  • et cetera

German and English sources “spell” the root very differently, but I think they’re talking about the same thing.
