Expression talk:able

From OmegaWiki

I'm new at this so I would like to know how to encode this idea in OmegaWiki:

Able

  • is an adjective describing someone or something as being capable of some task. (see: talk about capable
  • is an adjective describing someone as having the ability of doing something. Ability's definition contrasted with skill and phrased it as the the capacity of doing something. If we use capacity, we will probably need an adjective since capacity also could talk about how much volume a bucket occupies. I wonder if capacity is actually a sophisticated metaphor rather than a definition?
