Perspectives on word meanings designed to provide context or insight.
“What we call definitions are not definitions, they’re just hints. If you take the OED, the one you read with a magnifying glass, and they give you a very long definition of a word. But they’re not really definitions, they are just hints that a person who already knows the concept can use to understand what’s really going on”
– Noam Chomsky (transcribed from this interview)
