Dear A. Moeller,

I think you should try to focus on a period of time, as the word has had
more than one meaning, depending on the circumstances. if you don't do so,
this question can have more than one answer (and you can even find
contradictory definitions in some cases).
or are you asking about the development of this word's meaning?

kind Regards,
