L.O. to compose definitions
|I give definitions for nouns, describing them clearly and accurately.||I give alternative definitions (as for 'Tricky' but using words that can have more than one
|I also give metaphorical and/or creative definitions for words.|
|This task can be extended (see below).|
Here is a definition from a dictionary (Tricky/Basic):
table - noun - a flat surface on legs used for eating, working at etc.
Here is a similar definition written as a sentence (Tricky/Extension):
table - A table is an object that usually stands on four legs (though it can have more). It has a flat, typically rectangular surface, that offers support to items and can be used for activities such as drawing, writing, eating and working.
Here is an alternative dictionary definition for 'table' (Trickier):
table - noun - a selection of facts, figures or information presented in columns and rows
Here is a creative definition for 'table' (Trickiest):
table - The table lurks in the corner of the room, a monster hidden in plain sight, its headless body stalking silently on four legs, waiting for its moment.
This includes a description but it is also a definition (the table is presented as 'a monster hidden in plain sight').
