  1. I believe that it is a sentence that clarifies the meaning of the word. But you could probably look it up on google or something.

  2. A clarifying sentence is one in which you show that you know the meaning of the word.

    For instance, you shouldn't just say: The ao dai was beautiful.

    A clarifying sentence would be:

    Vietnamese high school girls wear long, white tunics, called ao dais over flowing white pants.
