The article is devoted to the research of the reflection of temporal relations in language within the framework of historical background of the "time" notion and its language forms. A linguistic problem connected with the "time" category is revealed through determining the means of nomination of this category and description of the semantic complex embodied in language signs. The submitted work is based on etymological researches of the concept of "time". The etymological material presented in this work from different languages confirms that the base for nomination of ancient views of time lying beyond vision and perception was associated with simple physical actions performed in space.
