You Be The Dictionary

Post by Anita on Mon Oct 17, 2011 2:03 pm

Hi, everyone! Razz

If you think creating a dictionary's easy, let's try to be one. :LOL:
Every poster gives a word for the next poster to define it with their own words, followed by a new expression.
Words don't have to be difficult. Indeed, the simpler the word is, the better - as sometimes they're harder to define due to their simplicity. No Wikipedia, Google or Call a friend.

This is a kind of training for those who usually talk to 3-year-old lads. Laughing

Let's begin with the definition of

PAPER

PAPER: noun. Narrow sheet mainly made from trees, in which you can write. Curious information: To produce a sheet of paper is needed 0,37 litres of clean water, that's why you should NOT waste paper, try using it on both sides ;-)

Very Happy
My word:
PILLOW

Wow! Interesting fact to keep in mind next time we use paper! Very Happy

MONEY (n): for me is the way capitalism value the job that people put in things. So the man who work on the production of a TV gets paid (of course with money), and he uses it to pay for the job a man invest in a bread.

Next word: JOB

  • To see with the eyes (not an instrument)
SIGHT (n)

Funny, because politics is meant to be related, not mixed, with economics. However, today these two fields are so corrupted in conjunction with power, that it's impossible to think of them separately!

POLICY (n): A set of rules, decisions or regulations that rule an institution, organisation or community.

I'm aware it's a bit difficult. I can see your conception of soul is related to Plato's definition. In previous times, though, or even in simultaneous times to his life and work, the sould was conceived as the body itself. What you mentioned, then, would have been the spirit. Philosophy issues...

INTELLIGENCE (n): The ability to think in order to carry out a variety of tasks and functions in life. E.g. intelligence to operate an item, intelligence to react, intelligence to learn a new thing, emotional intelligence, etc.
