How to Write Simple Definitions
There are three steps to follow for creating simple definitions.
- Research the term. If you find an existing definition that you like it, use it (and cite the original author). If not, then follow the rest of these steps.
- Determine what the term’s concept is. Is it a noun, verb, pronoun, etc.? Or is it more distinct, some type of named entity? This designation will format your definition’s focus.
- Choose the definition type that fits; intensional, extensional, partitive, etc. Then craft the definition to fit designation and subject matter using a standardize format.
