word:detim

detim

Adverb

detim

  1. [relative] the time at which; when

Etymology

de (relative morpheme) + tim “time”

Notes

In English, the word “when” can be used in either a relative sense (“when we met”) or an interrogative one (“when did we meet?”). In Belter, it appears that detim is only used for the relative sense; the interrogative version is ketim.
