The concept (from Lat. conceptio – understanding, system) – a certain way of understanding, interpreting any phenomena, the main point of view, the guiding idea for their coverage; a system of views on phenomena in the world, in nature, in society; a leading idea, a constructive principle in scientific, artistic, technical, political and other activities; a set of views related to each other and arising from one another, a system of ways to solve the chosen problem; a way of understanding, distinguishing and interpreting any phenomena that generate considerations and conclusions inherent only for this method. The concept defines the strategy of actions. Different concepts have their own terminological apparatus. This article examines the issues of differentiation of such terms as "concept", "concept" and "meaning". The linguistic differentiation of these terms is determined by comparing their content, basis and scope.
The correlation of the terms “concept” is considered from the point of view of various linguistic schools and directions. The content of terms in the research of philosophers, logicians and psychologists is described. The list of basic characteristics of the concept that distinguish it from the concept is given. The cognitive essence of the concept as a meaningful unit of the conceptual system and human memory is characterized.
One of the debatable issues of the communicative-cognitive paradigm is the ratio of "concept" and "meaning". The article examines the most common points of view of researchers on this issue as they appear. The dilution of these concepts is an important aspect in the lexicographic description of cognitive linguistics terms.
This article analyzes the conceptual range of terms "concept", "meaning", closely related to each other and in constant interaction in modern linguistics. The analyzed terms have both unifying and distinctive properties. These are one ordinal, but not equivalent categories of thinking: they are considered in various communication systems.

Key words: cognitive linguistics, concept, concept, meaning, linguistic characteristics, concept, concept, symbol, meaning, phenomenon, cognitive science
