The analysis illustrates problems, a contemporary political vocabulary researcher faces. There is the lexical area of politics, reconstructed according to structural and cognitive semantic assumptions. The lexeme's structure of meaning is based on the definitions in dictionaries of general Polish and dictionaries of political language. Lexicographic analysis has been supported by contemporary publicist contexts. It has allowed a distinction of 6 semantic components in understanding the term politics; each of them gathers words, for which a given component is a constitutive element.
