Synonyms of 'year'
idiom:year in, year out
related adjective annual
usage note:In writing spans of years, it is important to avoid ambiguity. A common style with four-figure dates is to write the first date in full and the last two digits of the second date: 1860-73, except where the two dates fall in different centuries, in which case both dates are given in full: 1850-1916. In three- and two-figure dates, the first and last dates of the span are both written in full to avoid ambiguity: 636-612 B.C. It is advisable to specify B.C. or A.D. in years under 1000, unless this is self-evident from the context.
