(poʊst)

n.
Emily Price, 1873?–1960, U.S. writer on social etiquette.

post-

a prefix, occurring orig. in loanwords from Latin, meaning “after, subsequent to,” “behind, at the rear or end of” (postaxial; postmeridian; postpone; postscript); in English esp. productive in the formation of adjectives or adjective derivatives that specify a period of time following the event, phenomena, period, etc., denoted by the headword (posttraumatic; post-Darwinian; postwar).
[< Latin, comb. form representing post (adv. and preposition)]

post

- Latin posita, "placed," gave us Italian posta, "station on a road," and became French poste, "a station for mail"—from the series of stations that fast horsemen traversed to deliver messages, giving us post, as in "mail system."
