Frisk Etymological English

Grammatical information: Adv. a. prep. w. gen.
Meaning: ahead, before, formerly, yore; in front of (Il., IA. )
Other forms: πρόσθα (Dor. Aeol.), from this πρόθθα (Cret.), πρόστα (Delph.).
Compounds: Also combined with other adv. (prep.), e.g. ἔμ-προσθε(ν), -θα in front (of), before (IA. resp. Dor. Aeol.) with ἐμπρόσθ-ιος in the front, esp. of bodyparts (Hdt., Att., Arist.), -ίδιος id. (A. D., pap.), ἐπί-προσθεν close before, near Att., hell.) with ἐπιπροσθ-έω to be in the way, in front of it, to hinder, to cover (Hp., hell.), ὑπό-προσθε just before (Hp.) with ὑπαπροσθ-ίδιος earlier (immigrated), older inhabintant (Locr.).
Derivatives: πρόσθ-ιος in the front, esp. of bodyparts (Hdt. as v. l., trag., Arist.; cf. ἐμπρόσθιος above), -ίδιος id. (Nonn.), προστ-ίζιος = προσθ-ίδιος earlier, the former (El.).
Origin: IE [Indo-European] or GR [a formation built with Greek elements] [000]
Etymology: Formation in -θε(ν), -θα, because of the meaning and spread hardly with Kretschmer Glotta 1, 55 from πρός, but rather from πρό with analog. -σ- (πρό-θεν only Greg. Cor.). Example hardly ὄπισθεν, as this seems to stand itself for ὄπι-θεν (rather the other way round ὄπισθεν after πρόσθεν). So after ἔκτοσ-θε(ν), ἔντοσ-θε(ν) (cf. Schwyzer 628) or to πρόσ(σ)-ω (cf. WP. 2, 38)? Extensive Lejeune Adv. en -θεν 333 ff.
