- Is music semantic or non-semantic? For a long time, there have been different opinions, but most people hold the bias that music is non-semantic and neglect research on the semantic nature of music. This paper made an attempt to discuss the semantic and non-semantic nature of music. Music not only means its pure form, but conveys emotions through "sounds" and "tunes", which always contains some meaning. As for the non-semantic nature of music, it lies in that musical material is not semantic and musical sounds play a decisive role.In the long history of music, semantic interpretations of music are commonly seen, but there are many vague "non-semantic" words in real life and literary works, and something non-semantic also exists in music.
