Meaning Notes
not until This usage of {aitcaat} corresponds to Danish 'først', but the meaning is difficult to express in English. It can perhaps best be translated as 'not until (some time specification)'. It indicates that the verbal action does not take place now (which might have been expected), but instead will have to wait until the later, specified time. Examples
just now This meaning may arguably be the same as 'not until' with implied now.
