The Problems of Meaning
Definition is stating the meaning of a word or phrase. In this essay we've examined the idea of meaning, and especially its variability. We've discussed the two very different purposes of definition - to specify customary meanings, and to specify special meanings for particular purposes. We've considered the main methods of defining words. And lastly we've considered some of the philosophical problems associated with definition.
Because definition is so fundamental to any serious discussion, it's important not to be confused about it. Unfortunately however, it is often much misunderstood. There's no need for this, because definition is really a simple straightforward matter about which there need be no real difficulty.
