The article deals with the problem of the possibility of defining lexical unit of contemporary Polish language 'muzyka' (music) as a specific kind of non-material artefact. The author attempts to prove that 'muzyka' can be defined as 'somethingi made by someone (j) to be heard by someone (k) who (because of the act of hearing) would feel something (l)'. The author suggests that the meaning of natural language units such as 'literatura' (literature), 'film' (film), 'malarstwo' (painting) and 'reklama' (advertisement) can be explained in a similar way.
