Before, in J.R.R. Tolkien's words

The Quenya word for "before" seems to be epë (before, of spatial relationships). But it can mean "after" when used of time, since the Eldar imagined future time (time that comes after the present) as being "before" them.

I didn't find a Sindarin word for the preposition before.
