Question Description

Extended Definition Essay

Plz include some grammar mistakes to take this easy.

650-700 Words

Due October 7

In your next writing assignment, you will choose a word that represents an abstract concept to define in detail.

Your essay should explain a unique opinion of the concept you chose—your definition should

differ from what others might say or vary from the simple dictionary definition.

It should also include various strategies of definition (definition by function, example, structure,

background and/or negation).

You should take into consideration:

  • Denotation
  • Connotation
  • Colloquial meaning
  • Etymology
  • Related Terms

Be as specific and detailed as possible; go beyond the obvious and

give specific examples that illuminate your unique definition of the word. The final extended

definition essay should be 650-700 words, typed and in MLA format, submitted on Blackboard.

Structure:

  • Introduction—Hook, background/context, thesis (your unique definition)
  • Body Paragraphs—Topic sentences, definition strategies (evidence), analysis of how your evidence
  • proves your thesis
  • Conclusion—Summarize your extended definition and highlight the ways your definition is different, leave readers with a statement of the definition’s importance—the “so what?”

become elected. For the Office of the President, the qualifications are that the candidate be a natural
born American citizen of at least thirty-five years old. They must also have lived in the country for at
