    After as an adverb?

    Hello my friends?

    Can we use after as an adverb?

    we can use before as an adverb in these examples:

    I have`nt seen this film before.

    we have tried him so many times before.

    Thanks,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Yes, "after" can be used as an adverb, but it is not used that way as commonly as "before".

    He arrived late for dinner and left shortly after.
