I want to do Definition, and on the topic: Family

any better ideas?

p.s. I think in Definition, you just have to extend the definition of the topic you choose. 'extnd definition by illustrating how some owrds go far beyond their dicitonary definition'

    I would have chosen lies. About sixty years ago,there was a popular book,Lies People Tell. I think one could have fun defining and classifying those.

    Now in the definition area, you are going to expand, as you noted. Feminine would be a fun one to do also, as wisdom would be.

    because for family i was thinking, that maybe i could explain what family means to different people.


    thanks

    Each one of these quotes could reveal meaning:
