Ante meridiem

“Ante meridiem” is a Latin phrase that means “before noon” in English. It is often shortened to “a.m.” and is used to refer to the time from midnight until noon. The period after noon is called “post meridiem” (p.m.). These terms are widely used in the 12-hour clock system to differentiate between morning and afternoon/evening hours.
