Summary/Abstract: The article presents the possibilities of using Formal Concept Analysis, FCA, in intralingual and machine translations. Let me draw your attention to the necessity of joining formal and conceptual systems into one system based on relations of the particular semantic deposits SD in the specific knowledge representation KR with defining linguistic units. I called this defining a hybrid defining. The hybrid defining of linguistic units enables to examine their cognitive (hybrid) meaning, which is implemented in a form of a coherent semantic map of meanings. An exemplifying material, by means of which a process of meaning creation is shown, is a light unit.
