11 Defining a Term

12 A definition is any writing that tries to give and pin down the meaning of a word. Definitions are usually necessary, especially when the word is either unclear, technical, or its meaning is in dispute. In defining a word, you may use one or a combination of the following strategies:

13 1. Use a synonym: To use a familiar synonym or a phrase to clarify an unfamiliar word. Example: Kelly is in love with Jeff, but she does not know how to let him know her affection toward him. 2. Give a formal definition: State what class the word belongs to and then show the features that differentiate it from other words in its class.

14 Example: 1. Love is a feeling of intense desire and word class feature affection toward a person. 2. For the French, friendship is a one-to- word class one relationship [that demands feature awareness of the other person’s intellect, temperament...].

15 3. Give the origin of the word: Tell what the word originally meant. Example: The verb “love” comes from the Latin word “lubEre,” meaning “to please.”

16 Exercise A: Read the following sentences. Indicate the strategies of definition used in them by putting S (Use a synonym or a clarifying phrase), F (Give a formal definition), or O (Give the origin of the word) in the blanks. ______ 1. Art is a creation that lifts the human spirit. ______ 2. A silly man is a person who has or shows a lack of good sense and judgment. F F
