Etymology of років? I learned that the Russian word for Years is лет and the word for year is год. If someone can explain where either of these come from, I will greatly appreciate it

"рок" is also a native Slavic root, now used in Russian words "рок"(fate) and "срок" (a period of time, a certain date associated with completing some "job").

Loosely connected to Russian "речь"(speech) and Ukranian "річ" (thing).
