day at English => English (English Etymology) Of Explained:

O.E. d?ig, from P.Gmc. *dagaz, from PIE *dhegh-. Not considered to be related to L. dies, but rather to Skt. dah "to burn," Lith. dagas "hot season," O.Prus. dagis "summer." Meaning originally, in Eng., "the daylight hours," expanded to mean "the 24-hour period" in late O.E. Daydream is 1685 (n.), 1820 (v.). Day off first recorded 1883; day-tripper first recorded 1897; daylight in slang sense of "clear open space between two things" is from 1820. Day-Glo is 1951, proprietary name (Dane & Co. of London) for a brand of fluorescent paint. The days in nowadays, etc. is a relic of the O.E. and M.E. use of the adverbial genitive. ///

day at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

Time required for a celestial body to turn once on its axis; especially, the period of the earth's rotation. The sidereal day is the time required for the earth to rotate once relative to the background of the stars (i.e., the time between two observed passages of a star over the same meridian of longitude). The apparent solar day is the time between two successive transits of the sun over the same meridian. Because the orbital motion of the earth makes the sun seem to move slightly eastward each day relative to the stars, the solar day is about four minutes longer than the sidereal day. The mean solar day is the average value of the solar day, which changes slightly in length during the year as the earth's speed in its orbit varies.
