Patrick Hurley states a stipulative definition is, “when one person covertly uses a word in a peculiar way and then proceeds to assume that everyone else uses that word in the same way.” This can cause a misconception or difference of the meaning, if there were ever a true meaning. It is found in Merriam Webster’s dictionary, that colored is sometimes offensive

Do you know someone rich and famous? Is he confident, popular, and joyful all of the time-the epitome of mainstream success? Or, on the other hand, is he stressed, having second thoughts about his life choices, and unsure about the meaning of his life? I am willing to be that it is the second one. Mainstream marketing and media have effectively brainwashed our society into accepting a false, even potentially dangerous definition of success. Marketers want us to believe that having lots of money, living in a big house, and owning all of the latest cars, fashions, and technology is the key to happiness, and hence, success. This overstated, falsely advertised myth is hardly ever the case in

However, the question is not if Mohammed burnt the house down or not, because he admit to doing so. The question is did Mr. Mohammed commit a crime or not. Okay let me explain.

Anthony Giddens ("Sociology", 1989) provides the following general definition:
"Sociology is the study of human social life, groups and societies. It is a dazzling and compelling enterprise, having as its subject matter our own behaviour as social beings.
The scope of sociology is extremely wide, ranging from the analysis of passing encounters between individuals in the street up to the investigation of world-wide social processes".

The definition provided in The American College Dictionary from 1964 says “a group of men or women leading a common life according to a rule.” I never really viewed community in this manner. Many of us think of the word “community” as a group of people who live near each other. We forget that a community is actually just a group of people with common interests or characteristics who often happen to live near each other. Communities can be bound by race, religion, economic standings, political standings, and most commonly, location. Frequently, communities fall into more than one of these categories.

Today, the definition of a family has changed greatly because of cultural and social changes across the world. Rather than defining a family in legal terms, the definition tends to lean more in emotional or social terms; thus, a family has become a unit of people who adore and care for each other (Williams, 2005). The rise of values such as individualism and democracy has affected the structure of modern family greatly with the occurrence of major difference between traditional and non-traditional family. Although various families share likenesses in terms of concept of care and love, they have major differences in terms of size, gender roles, and legal structures.

The Definition of Family Many things have changed in the traditional American family. Years ago, the word family was easily defined as a mother, a father, and children. Today, things are so much different than they used to be. To be considered a family, there does not even have to be two parents. Single parent homes are a common thing these days. It is also common for a home to consist of two parents of the same sex. Though different from traditional ways, these households still make up families.

Definition Essay – Defining Freedom
Is it possible to define freedom? To define freedom is more than a difficult task, but perhaps easier than one might imagine if not overanalyzed. Given ample time to consider the task, however, a simple, sufficient definition can present itself: freedom is the ability to choose, for any creature living life in any place in any time. There is no greater truth to the statement, and no underlying meanings; freedom is simply the ability to choose.
So one might ask, "If this ability to choose applies to all creatures in all places in all times, why can freedom only be defined in the context of the specific creature whose definition of

Furthermore, whichever definition and subcategories we decide are sufficient, political development often encompasses attributes that are difficult to measure numerically.
That being said, there are some criteria that are common across the many definitions of political development

Recently, people have been arguing with respect to the definition of marriage. To get married is a very important event for almost everyone. Particularly for women, marriage and giving a birth could be the two major events of their lives. Andrew Sullivan and William Bennett are authors who are arguing about homosexual marriage. Sullivan believes in same-sex marriage because he thinks everyone has a right to marry. On the other hand, Bennett speaks out against Sullivan’s opinion. Bennett makes a claim that marriage is between a man and a woman structuring their entire life together. Both authors’ opinions differ on same-sex marriage. Nevertheless, their ideas are well recognized.

The determination of death has become extremely complicated and confusing; even some medical experts find it hard to put it in words. A history professor at the University of Michigan, Martin S.

Beecher, Chair of the Ad Hoc Committee of the Harvard Medical School to Examine the Definition of Brain-Death, said in his 1970 lecture, “There is a need to move death to the side of the individual’s consciousness, and if loss of consciousness is permanent, then to declare death.” A priest asked in the discussion following this lecture

The word “failure”, by definition, is the condition of not achieving the desired end or ends. However, this standard definition does not come close to summing up the countless other meanings of failure. Every person, regardless of status, color, or sex, has had to deal with this issue at least once in their lifetime. Even so, each person’s definition of it can vary depending on their personal experiences. The interpretations of failure may differ, but failure itself involves not putting forth effort, being a disappointment, or not succeeding in a task.

What is art? Art and perception are deeply interrelated, since our ability to experience and comprehend artistic works is strongly biased by our own perceptions. Accordingly, any definition of art should emphasize the importance of perception in creating and experiencing art. Yet, each person has his or her own opinion of every artistic work, biased by his or her own perceptions, causing each person to define art as a whole in his or her own subjective manner. Hence, in my opinion it is impossible to create an objective definition of art, if art is something that each person perceives and experiences in a wholly subjective manner.

The drawing did not come out as I imagined but it took me to a place and every time I saw the picture I thought about the vision I had created in my head.

Communication is a fluid concept in today's academia. While many scholars have tried to pin down an overarching definition of communication, we have not yet reached a strong centrally agreed upon generalization that includes all aspects of the term. Each definition offers something similar to the other, while at the same time, building upon it, adding something further. From my research, I would have to agree with Miller in the text reading and say that communication is transactional.

Ethics are not absolute rules, and individuals who work with codes of ethics are not legally bound to them. But, a media worker may be held professionally responsible for their actions if they are in conflict with their profession's code of ethics.

While it’s true that a clinical psychologist works to treat and console one’s mental illness and disability, there is much more to what makes a clinical psychologist than what the definition says. To me, being a clinical psychologist means not only helping treat a mental illness but helping the patient cope with different life struggles they may face.

actually established a clear definition of what dramaturgs actually do. Therefore, whilst I can’t propose that I can create a solid definition of what dramaturgy itself is, I shall lie the groundwork for a study into what dramaturgy may be, using an over-arching definition of what, I believe, is itself an actual field of drama and theatre studies. I initially intend to do this by referring to the teachings of such renowned dramaturgs as Adam Versényi and Gotthold Lessing. Dramaturgy also works as a form of analysis which explores the relationship between spectator, performer and even playwright; changing our preconceptions of what theatre should and could actually be. It is also important for
