Word Family

Root: *yer-

The core idea of this root was:

year, season, cycle

It’s the origin of the words year and Jahr as well as the word hour, which in ancient Greek was more generally about a full cycle.

It’s possible that the root ties in with a root that was about going, but German and English sources mention different things here.
