Related Greek hōra 1) year, season, any part of a year; and 2) any part of a day, hour (to which both English words are distantly related) is of no help at all in getting this sorted in anyone's head.
- yearly: annual
- year-long: lasting for or throughout the year qui dure pendant une ou tout au long de l' année
- yearling (1-year-old animal)
- of yore: of years gone by
