Kesha or Eric -- please use the same name for your posts.
How does your book define direct and indirect definitions?
Indirect meanings are those meanings that we believe and assume to be true without looking them up in a dictionary. Sometimes these can even be true. Direct meanings are those that are proven to be true and factual. We can find those definitions in a dictionary or text books.
Thanks. I couldn't find these definitions online.
Your answer is correct. That statement is true.
