[Middle English periode, from Old French, from Medieval Latin periodus, from Latin perihodos, rhetorical period, from Greek periodos, circuit : peri-, peri- + hodos, way.]

Synonyms: period, epoch, era, age, term. These nouns refer to a portion or length of time. Period is the most general: a short waiting period; one of the most difficult periods of her life; worked for a period of ten years; the Romantic period in music. Epoch refers to a period regarded as being remarkable or memorable: "We enter on an epoch of constitutional retrogression" (John R. Green). An era is a period of time notable because of new or different aspects or events: "How many a man has dated a new era in his life from the reading of a book" (Henry David Thoreau). An age is usually a period marked by a particular distinctive characteristic: the age of Newton; the Iron Age. "These principles form the bright constellation which has . . . guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation" (Thomas Jefferson). A term is a period of time to which limits have been set: Senators are elected for a term of six years.

Word History: Perhaps more than once one may have wondered why the word period has the sense "punctuation mark ( . )" as well as some of its other senses having to do with time. The answer to this question lies in the senses of the Greek word periodos from which our word is descended. Periodos, made up of peri-,"around," and hodos,"way," meant such things as "going round, way round, going round in a circle, circuit," and with regard to time "cycle or period of time." The word also meant "the period of menstruation." In rhetoric it referred to "a group of words organically related in grammar and sense." The Greek word was adopted into Latin as perihodos with only its rhetorical sense and one other sense, but in Medieval Latin it reacquired senses it had in Greek, such as "cycle," and acquired a new sense, "a punctuation mark used at the end of a rhetorical period." Although this sense is recorded in Medieval Latin, it is not recorded in English until 1609. But the word period had entered Middle English from Medieval Latin and Old French, first being recorded in a work written around 1425 in the sense "a cycle of recurrence of a disease."
