The paper deals with the issue of modeling the structure of lexical meaning from the perspective of modern semantics. The analysis of the existing theories is carried out in order to stress the importance of using this method. The correlation of language units with the reality which is fixed in their lexical meaning is described. Modeling is the method that helps us explain that correlation and describe components of lexical meaning in detail. Characteristic features of linguistic models are shown, and on this basis their classification is presented. The main principle of the classification is the opposition of models due to different aspects. The specific of the term 'modeling' is cleared up, and concepts of an object level and a meta-level are differentiated. The difference between 'a language model' and 'a linguistic model' is explained. As a result, an example of modeling the lexical meaning of a word is given in order to emphasize the practical application of the modeling method
