一時 pronunciation

Is it pronounced いちじ or ひととき? It seems to be different in different sentences!

The pronunciation of 一時 depends on the context. When you use いちじ, it means 1 o'clock. When you use ひととき, it means a moment. Also, if you need help with the pronunciations, I recommend the Chrome extension rikaikun for looking up pronunciations and meanings of Kanji.
