Without doubt sequential time and chronological time are important elements to the study of the Buendia family saga, a feat many have attempted. However, the present analysis is a linguistically determined understanding of the concept of time in the novel One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Examining dictionary entries of the lexical item 'time' yielded many apt nominal and adjectival phrases, thus enabling a linguistic exploration and identification of a variety of actions and events within a time-related framework. Although far from exhaustive, the result is that an alternative knowing of the concept of time in the novel has been established.
