WHAT DOES ERA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Era

An era is a period of time marked by distinctive character, events, changes on earth, etc. When used in science, for example geology, an era denotes a clearly defined period of time of arbitrary but well-defined length, such as for example the Mesozoic Era from 252 Ma–66 Ma, delimited by a start event and an end event. When used in social history, eras may for example denote a period of some monarch's reign. In colloquial language, eras denote longer spans of time, before and after which the practices or fashions change to a significant degree. When era is extended to a calendar system, it is known as a calendar era. In Sanskrit or Indian culture eras are known as Yugas.

10 QUOTES WITH «ERA»

Famous quotes and sentences with the word era.
1
Freda Adler
The passionate controversies of one era are viewed as sterile preoccupations by another, for knowledge alters what we seek as well as what we find.
2
Bob Beauprez
I can't help but recall my dad and mom. Depression era kids, 8th and 9th grade educations, clawed and scratched to make a living as dairy farmers their whole life. At least two drought cycles nearly took it all away. They just worked harder, longer... and they made it.
3
David R. Brower
I was actually telling people that - by harnessing the atom - we could enter a new era of unlimited power that would do away with the need to dam our beautiful streams.
4
Kevin Brownlow
Some directors were brilliant in the silent era but never felt at home in sound. It's like a sculptor being forced to take up painting.
5
Craig Bruce
I wonder if those people shown protesting the deployment of nuclear weapons to western Europe during the Reagan era are feeling appropriately stupid today. 'Please don't take away our precious Soviet Union! - We demand the annihilation of all life on Earth!'
6
Jimmy Buffett
I hate to mention age, but I come from an era when we weren't consumed by technology and television.
7
Henry Cavill

David Cone
Clemens and Maddux have defined our era, I believe. And Randy Johnson is right behind them and still going.
9
Adam Davidson
If the American government can't stand behind the dollar, the world's benchmark currency, then the global financial system will very likely enter a new era in which there is much less trade and much less economic growth. It would be, by most accounts, the largest self-imposed financial disaster in history.
10
Roberto Duran
I laugh when Floyd Mayweather says that if he went back in time he would beat us all. I'll tell you this: if he was in the same era as Hagler and Hearns and Leonard and me, I don't think he would be such a big name. There is too much talk.
