era at CMU American English spelling Of Explained:

['erə]

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

1615, from L.L. ?ira, era "an era or epoch from which time is reckoned," probably identical with L. ?ira "counters used for calculation," pl. of ?is (gen. ?iris) "brass, money" (see ore). The L. word's use in chronology said to have begun in 5c. Spain (where, for some reason unknown to historians, the local era began 38 B.C.E.; some say it was because of a tax levied that year). Like epoch, in Eng. it originally meant "the starting point of an age;" meaning "system of chronological notation" is c.1646; that of "historical period" is 1741. ///
