The articulation of time: some Indo-European comparisons

Abstract:
Viewed anthropologically, time is articulated variously (divisions of year or lifespan, generations, reigns, etc). Divisions correlated with non-temporal domains like society or space form 'primitive classifications'. Evidence for an early Indo-European pentadic scheme is drawn from king-lists (Roman, Iranian, Norse), Avestan cosmogony, eras and daily/annual ritual cycles in India.
