speaking of the prefix 'pre' meaning before, I just asked my beloved to explain why the word 'present' means NOW and not 'before', and for that matter, the word 'present' (to present something) is also NOW. He explained the latter from the Latin 'scind' (understanding) but not the one meaning here and now. Any takers? I'm just puzzled...

present (adj.) Look up present at Dictionary.com
c.1303, "existing at the time," from O.Fr. present (11c.), from L. præsentem (nom. præsens) "present, immediate, prompt," from prp. of præesse "be before (someone or something), be at hand," from præ- "before" + esse "to be." Meaning "being there" is from 1340. As a grammatical tense, recorded from 1388. Presently is c.1380 as "immediately," but by 1566 it had relaxed into "sooner or later." Present-day "contemporary" is attested from 1887.

AHHH... Atalante, that makes sense -- the 'prae' as 'to be.' And it's latin in origin! I shall give my darling husband a bit of a bad time because he studied Latin quite extensively. Thank-you!!

but ch12, "prae" means
"before", not "be". . . simplified in modern spelling to "pre"

I shall re-read Atalante's search and look it up too. Thank-you for the correction! :)

oh bonk, I'm sorry about your discomfort. Someone should have a special sac to toss babblers in when they are sik--or is that a cultural idiosyncracy?
