After, in my words

paeft : after

The Illunse word for after is paeft. Similar Paeff is an unusual last name. Similar Old English word pæð (which I transliterate to paeth) means path, track.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for after æfter (after, along, behind; throughout, during; following, in consequence of) and the Latin word for after post (behind in space, after in time; subordinate in rank).
