A Guide to Writing a Good Definition Essay

A definition is an explanation of the meaning of something, maybe a word or a phrase, to another person. Therefore, a definition essay is a form of writing that explains what that thing means. These types of essays are often written by first-year college or university students since the introduction to many courses require students to define terms, words or phrases. Some terms and phrases have definite meanings while others are more abstract and require the student to give their own point of view.

When writing a definition essay, the first thing you need to do is choose what term you want to define. Although it may seem obvious, you need to first understand the term that you want to define before you can define it for others. If you need to, read the definition of the word in the dictionary so that you can get a clear meaning of the word. There are different kinds of definition essays and some of them include historic definition essays, negative definition essays and restrictive definition essays. You need to understand what each of them is so that you can define the subject as is required.

Once you have chosen your subject, you need to gather information about it through literary sources. Choose what type of definition essay you wish to write and then get examples that illustrate the meaning of the term you are writing about. In your introduction, you need to include a thesis statement that tells the reader what your essay is about. Then, develop your ideas regarding the term you are defining in the body of the essay. You can give a general definition of the term, when the term was coined, derived or first used, its synonyms and antonyms (if any) and in which situations the term is commonly used. After completing the main body of the text, write an instructive conclusion that mirrors your introduction and the ideas in the main body of the essay.
