Common questions in AmericanEnglish reveal this concrete quality as though time were apossession. “Do you have any time?”, “Can you get some timefor this?”, “How much free time do you have?” The treatmentof time as a possession influences the way that time is carefullydivided.

  Generally, Americans are taught to do one thing at a time andmay be uncomfortable when an activity is interrupted. In businesses, the careful scheduling of timeand the separation of activities are common practices. Appointment calendars are printed with 15-,30-, and 60-minute time slots. The idea that “there is a time and place for everything” extends toAmerican social life. Visitors who drop by without prior notice may interrupt their host’s personaltime. Thus, calling friends on the telephone before visiting them is generally preferred to visitors’dropping by.
