Seconds, minutes.

Seconds and minutes are probably a thing that could be recognized ICly, right?

I don't really think that Zalanthas has any system of astronomy/astrology or other science that would have given rise to the concepts of minutes and seconds as we know them (60 minutes in an hour, 60 seconds in a minute, all very clockwork and mechanical and measurable). I think it's OK to use "minute" or "second" to mean "unspecified period of time which is shorter than a Zalanthan hour," though, as in "I'll be at the stables in a minute to meet you," or "Gimme just a second to get my purse out before you cut me, you rat bastard mugger."
