"He eats before her."
Translation:El mănâncă înainte de ea.
In what sense 'before'? - He eats before she does? i.e. he eats first, she eats later; ="before in time" or... - He eats in front of her? i.e. she watches him eat; ="before in space"...
It could be both. But it is used almost always with the meaning "before in time".
