Czech[edit]

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *doba ‎(time) probably comes from Proto-Indo-European *dʰabʰ- ‎(appropriate), which is also connected with Lithuanian dabà ‎(nature, character) and dabar̃ ‎(now), Gothic 𐌲𐌰𐌳𐌰𐌱𐌰𐌽 ‎(gadaban, be appropriate), so it is possible that originally it meant "appropriate time" which later changed just into "time".[1]

Noun[edit]

doba f

  1. age (particular period of time in history)
  2. period
  3. (music) beat
