Definition Essay in a Nutshell

When you write a definition essay, you use various techniques (denotation, connotation, enumeration, analogy, and negation) to extend the definition of the term, concept, or idea that you are defining in your essay. It’s important to keep your audience in mind and to think about how much or little your readers know about who or what you are defining.
