This article is about a word in the Belter Creole language.


Adverb Edit


  1. (relative) the time at which; when

Etymology Edit

de (relative morpheme) + tim "time"

Notes Edit

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.
