comment When should you use “erst” rather than “nur”?
Thanks for the explanation and examples. As a followup, could you confirm whether a sentence like "er konnte Klavier spielen, als er erst sechs Jahre alt war" also fits the temporal order usage pattern? I interpret it to mean "only, but also after" - so it's similar but the "erst" marks the start rather than the end of something in time.
