How could the author describe finite periods?

This question is for Day-Age theorists who know a thing or 2 about Hebrew, primarily Biblical Hebrew. Day-Age theorist Hugh Ross said that in Biblical Hebrew , yom was the only word that could be used to describe a long but finite period of time. Now, if this is true, then this would help support our interpretation even more. Is this claim true though?

What interpretation?

The interpretation of Day-Age, as well as Yom being used literally to describe long, finite periods. Again, this question is intended for Day-Age theorists, and for people who don’t interpret the Genesis account to be just some made up, fictional story

I feel sorry for such. They’re lost and don’t know it.

It is the story that God wanted us to have so even if it isn’t literally true (not necessarily the opposite of “made up, fictional story”) don’t you think it would still have meaning for us?
