Abstract

Definition which refers to the term concept with different formation of the form of specific words in a dictionary has been the reason of the study. Collected data were in the form of definian taken from document record, identification and classification of the norms found in the dictionaries. The data collection technique was documentation done through note taking, identification, and classification of the definiandum formats. The data analysis was content analysis, similarities and distributions of the definian. The result of the study shows patterns of genus definition and differentia, synonymous, antonymous, negation, and broad and narrow, collocations, dual and multi, circular, context bounded and context unbounded, and zero definition. They show the level of information, clearness, and assurance of a concept. Contextual and non contextual features were found in definition. Contextual refers to the meaning related to the field of study whereas non contextual means the other way around. In the technical dictionary, the definition is provided in the form of contextual features to distinguish the technical meaning from the common one. The findings show that pragmatic an important reference in the conception of definian in technical dictionary as well as semantics called as Pragmasemantics.
