This article explores the cognitive aspect of conceptual metaphors of time. One seeks to find out the ways of expression of various time concepts constituting time metaphors, and the differences between the metaphoric usage of time and its hyponyms. The donor zones for the analysis of time metaphors were selected as follows: a moving object, space and abstract concept. (Saule Juzeleniene and Ilona Mickiene)
