Question: What are some classifications of definitions?

Answer: Defining Is An Unnatural act” A Study of Written Definitions. “Definitions were classified as synonym/antonym, explanation, descriptive or functional explanation, instance, use in a sentence, and repetition or association.” CLZ Blachowicz and PJL Fisher. 1988. P. 213.

Comment: Gave me something to think about. I’ll never look at definitions again without trying to define their method of defining. RayS.
