    Re: use of before, ago, earlier, back

    How about some examples?

    Before:
    "I have never seen that car before."
    "Before you go out, comb your hair."
    "To go where no man has gone before."

    Ago:
    "Many years ago dragons roamed the land."
    "I saw her leave about 30 minutes ago."
    "That happened many moons ago."

    Earlier:
    "Earlier today the temperature reached 100F."
    "Bill arrived at work earlier on friday as traffic was light."

    Back:
    "Back before the guns were invented, swords were a very popular weapon."
    "Go back to the start of the race."
    "It is impossible to back in time."
    "Parking can be found back behind the store."

    Hope this helps a bit.
