Infix terminology
« on: March 13, 2012, 06:14:13 am »
Maybe this is better placed in Linguistics … but anyway.

We have ‹am› and ‹ay› as ‘past’ and ‘future’ or praeteritum and futurum (if I’m not mistaken) in linguistic terminology.

Now, I wanted to know if there a latin/greek based terminology for ‹ìm› and ‹ìy› as well, other than ‘near/immediate past/future’.

Can somebody help?

Except for replacing English "near" with the more majestic Latinate "proximate," I know of no special single terms for these.
