-time e tempo-

-time e tempo-
Nota d'uso
Il sostantivo time non corrisponde soltanto a “tempo”: What's the time?, che ora è? (non che tempo è); It's time to go, è ora di andare. ”Tempo” in ambito sportivo si traduce con half quando la partita si svolge in due tempi: The first half of the match was great, il primo tempo della partita è stato fantastico. Il primo (secondo, ecc.) tempo di un film o di uno spettacolo è the first part. Espressioni avverbiali come “in un primo tempo”; “in un secondo tempo” diventano at first o at the beginning, afterwards, later on: At first everything seemed alright, in un primo tempo sembrava tutto a posto; Afterwards he changed completely, in un secondo tempo cambiò completamente.
