Concrete
A term is concrete if it possesses a referent in the external physical
world, i.e. if it refers to a reality that can be perceived by the five senses.
Concrete terms make up what is known as the figurative level of
meaning. They are contrasted with abstract, conceptual terms to be
found on the deep level. Concrete terms can have a wealth of meanings depending on the context in which they are used, in other words they have a high semic density. Abstract terms, on the other hand, are much simpler and have low semic density. The term ‘car’, for instance, in addition to the concrete object may also signify ‘speed’, ‘freedom’ or ‘prestige’ etc., whereas the abstract concepts ‘freedom’ or ‘prestige’ are restricted in their meanings.
