Lexeme Definition

The Lexeme Definition provides an explanation of the general semantic nuance of a Lexeme as distinct from the other Lexemes in the same semantic field or Synonym Group.

Lexemes (as opposed to Lexeme Entries) are defined only where the words categorised under this Lexeme are in relatively common use and have therefore been analysed in the synonym dictionary provided under the heading Synonym Group Criteria.

Nota bene:
The Lexeme Definitions attempt to summarise what is semantically basic and distinctive about a word without entering into any discussion of syntactically specific uses of words.
