    probably they're referring to cases like these:

    : to have come since morning
    ͹Ǥ: to go to sleep as early as dusk

    the meaning of here is just like (since, from).

    all the best.

    ps. for , it's best if you give us a sentence. , especially, has a variety of meanings, so context is important.

    thanks for the reply!

    the context is something like...

    if he still doesn't come by 3pm, then we better take a taxi.

    so i was wondering where 'gor ca' should be placed.

    You could say
    Һѧ ҡй硫仴ա

    is often used in Thai to introduce the subordinate clause, so the English "If..., then..." construction is ...... in Thai. The just means will.

    , = going to

    If you are not here by 3 PM, we will ( are going to ) take a cab.

    If you don't love me, I am going to leave you. :-)
