Definitions

I am a linguist by training, a writer by hobby, and I enjoy dabbling in philosophy.  Inevitably, the definitions of words are a fascinating by-way.

Given that I write about topics that can be controversial, I have begun to occasionally post definitions of key words I use.  The definitions I offer are descriptive:  they are designed to make it clear to you what I mean when I use these words.  I am not trying to use my great authority as a trained linguist to impose these meanings on you mere users of language.

At any rate, here is a list of the definitions I’ve posted so far, with links to the relevant blog posts.  Feel free to request definitions or give other feedback.

Future definitions:

  • materialism
  • science

And here are some general posts on what words mean:
