The popular Etymological dictionary gives Avestan yare "year" as a cognate of Eng. year, Germ Jahr, Greek hora etc. This seems plausible, however, I could not find yare in any ofthe Avestan dictionaries I have at hand. I also could not find anything in Sanskrit which would be even remotely similar. This seems unusual. Can anybody advise me if yare has been attested in Avestan and give a reference? I also suspect that the transliteration "yare" may not be correct. I would appreciate any other ideas and/or links in modern IE languages regarding this word.
