Neighboring Concepts:

Similar to...But different because...
before Asserts that one Time-Interval comes strictly before another. Temporally-overlaps, on the other hand, means that the two Time-Intervals overlap to some extent.
during Asserts that one Time-Interval is during (completely contained within) another
temporally-meets Asserts that one Time-Interval meets (abuts) another
temporally-starts Asserts that two Time-Intervals begin together
temporally-finishes Asserts that two Time-Intervals end together
