If we take the word 'day' as meaning 'the length of time it takes a planet to revolve around its axis' and 'year' as 'length of time it takes for a planet to orbit its star' then how come, whenever anyone meets a new species they can discuss days and hours and it appears to mean the same thing for both of them?

Does anyone know?
