Transcript of Definition Essay
What is definition essay?
A definition essay is an essay concentrated on the explanation of the meaning of a definite term. The term may be analyzed from the position of
one and only meaning
and also from the position of
subjectivity of the person defining the term
. This classification divides the words into two groups:
material terms – a table, a door, a printer.
spiritual terms – friendship, love, honor, pride.
How do we write definition essay?
A good definition essay is required to have a strong thesis statement in which the point of view of the author on a certain term is revealed. Ordinarily, the term is given the general basic definition implying that the dictionary definitions must be only a start for the author’s unique definition of the term. In order to make a definition essay professionally it is necessary to find a definition of the term that corresponds to the opinion of the author. The definition is always given in own words and specifies what meaning of the term is to be analyzed.
Gold rules for writing a good definition essay.
The definition should never copy the dictionary definition but is supposed to be unique reflection of the author’s opinion.
The best way to explain the definition is to use simple language.
