Definition Essay:

1302

A definition essay is a piece of writing that explains what a term or a concept means.
Some words have definite, concrete meanings, such as glass, book, or tree. Terms such
as honesty, honor, or love are abstract and depend more on a person’s point of view.

The term may be evaluated from the direct, or exact meaning and the point of the
subjectivity of the person defining the term. The aim is not only to provide the dictionary
definition but also expound on why the word is defined in such a manner. The approach
depends on the subject, readers, and the essay’s purpose.

Your introduction should conclude with a clear, precise thesis statement that tells your
readers just what the essay will discuss. All body paragraphs directly support the thesis
statement. The thesis statement usually identifies the term being defined and provides a
brief, basic definition. (do not type … in this essay I will discuss) NO!!!
