behind is a synonym of after

preposition [ bih-hahynd ]

behind is another word for after

✅  After is the best word to use when something happens later than a certain fixed point in time (After lunch we’ll go to the museum), but can also refer imprecisely to the position of something in space (Their house is after the intersection).

✅  Behind can also refer to your relationship to a fixed point of time, meaning that at that fixed point, you weren’t where you were supposed to be (I was running behind schedule), but this is a less frequent use. Behind more often refers to something that is physically at the rear of another person or thing (She was standing behind me).

✅  When referring to something following something else, behind is more precise than after, and after usually suggests that the people or things you’re referring to are in motion somehow (They went in one after the other; I hid behind the sofa).
