The subject matter of the study is the presentation of questions which are connected
with the notion of the phoneme. The authoress intention was to approach the reader not only with
the meaning of this notion but to show how differently it can be understood and what role it plays
regarding the usage of a language. The effect of presented considerations is the presentation of own
capture of a phoneme with the help of chosen principles of cognitive linguistics, particularly the
theory of prototypes.
