Definition allows you to specify a descriptive text for the thing a term entry refers to.
The definition in a term entry applies to all terms saved for the entry in all languages, i.e. all terms in a term entry describe one and the same thing, but represent different alternatives (indicated by the status) for naming this thing.
Definition allows users to acquire a better understanding of the term contents and place the thing described by the term in its real context.
Definition in Lexeri
In Lexeri, the definition is shown in the term entry under General points on the right.
You can add and define a definition either when creating a new term in the term entry form or afterwards by editing the definition directly in the existing term entry.
You can edit the definition within an existing term entry by using the pencil icon in the definition section.
This takes you to the form for editing the definition and you can change the definition as you wish in the corresponding text field.
Click on Save to apply the changes and they will be immediately shown in the term entry.
