Abstract. The article reveals a system of thematic linkings for the lexeme "time" in James Joyce’s novel "Finnegans Wake". In the cluster analysis of a literary text the author determined the words, regularly repeated in a minimal context of the selected lexeme, and united the obtained descriptors in the thematic groups. As a result, it was found that the main thematic components of the associative field for the "time" in the novel interpret the time as anthropocentric, archaic and plot.
