[+] General properties

The prefix oer- can be used to derive adverbs of time, however on a quite modest scale. The only cases are oaremoarnthe day after tomorrow > oeroaremoarntwo days after tomorrow and earjusterthe day before yesterday > oerearjustertwo days before yesterday. As with the comparable instance of the kinship terms (see oer- forming nouns out of nouns), oer- is used to derive a third-degree term from a second-degree term.

The adverbs formed by oer- can be further prefixed by bet-, to form an even higher degree. For more information, see bet-.

[+] Phonological properties

The prefix is pronounced as [uər]. The stress is always on the prefix, as in OERearjustertwo days before yesterday.
