"The quantity of the knowledge increases with geometric progression and the corresponding body of records grows even faster. Transferring knowledge and pertinent information has become a vigorous activity. An increasing need for de-specializing the knowledge, due to an increase in inter-disciplinary communication, calls for more friendly i.e. more detailed, hence even more voluminous, communication. Definitions are fundamental bricks of knowledge: however it appear that the notion of definition itself is not sufficiently explained."(A contribution to Defining the Term 'Definition' | Sead Spuzic and Fons Nouwens Central queensland University, Rockhampton, Australia | pdf file)
