Comment: Either (specifically) 'twelve months' or 'a specific year' (cf. տարւոյ տարի tarwoy tari 'every year; annually, year by year', lit. "[from one] year [to the next] year"); ի տարւոջ 'per annum', lit. "in [this or that] year"). Cf. also Ačaṙyan (1926:385) who points to the usage of տարի tari as 'one year' while only ամ am was used when referring to multiple years.
