- In this paper, we state that conceptual-taxonomical analysis allows to carry out a profound time analysis. Three levels of categorization are examined: 1. Base level that is the starting point of the analysis, level of prototypes: lexical, grammatical, linguocognitive and conceptual; 2. Upper superordinate level that presents the concept of time in general, taken as a unity, gestalt in its broad sense; 3. Subordinate level of specification that reveals secondary spatial, metaphorical and metonymical linguocognitive models of time.
