Cover Page

Abstract


The article studies the approved in scientific discourse models of meaning while despite the type of a model proposed, meaning is often based on the relationship between the elements of the Aristotelian semantic triad: those of words to things, words to concepts, concepts to things. This way the theory of the meaning studied by semantics could be respectively combined with reference, knowledge and belief. Thus, meaning analysis is referred to the truth and reference, taxonomic or naïve knowledge, everyday experience, mental representations, prototypes, social stereotypes, individual feelings, etc. The only adequate model be recognized should obviously imply all or almost all of those types of meaning.
