The word of the day is epoch, spelled “E-P-O-C-H”. Epoch is a noun that means an event or a time that begins a new period or development, or more broadly, a memorable event or date. Epoch can also mean an extended period of time usually characterized by a distinctive development or by a memorable series of events or a division of geologic time less than a period and greater than an age.

Here is the word used in a sentence. “The Victorian epoch is often seen as a time of great formality.”

Epoch comes to us via Medieval Latin, from the Greek word “epoche”, meaning cessation or fixed point. "Epoche" in turn comes from the Greek verb meaning to pause or to hold back.

When epoch was first borrowed into English, it referred to the fixed point used to mark the beginning of a system of chronology. That sense's now obsolete, but today epoch is used in some fields such as astrology with the meaning "an instant of time" or a date selected as a point of reference.

The sense that means an event or a time that begins a new period or development first appeared in print in the early 1600s and epoch has been applied to defining moments of periods of time ever since.
