정의된 의미(DefinedMeaning)는 오메가위키 자료기지의 테이블(표)이다. 오메가위키 프로젝트가 적절하게 작동하기위해서 사람들은 어떤 정의된 의미가 무었인지 어떻게 작동하지는를 이해하여야 한다.
정의된 의미의 생성
정의된의미 (DM)는 시작점으로서 표현을 취한다. 그리고 하나 또는 여러 문장에서 이 표현에의해 나타난 개념( 중의 하나를) 설명한다.; 정의 정의된 의미는 어떤 언어에서 시작될 수 있다. 그리고 첫 표현과 첫 정의는 표실될 것이거나 편집 페이지에 한쪽에 나타날 것이다.
정의된 의미로 번역된 정의가 덧붙여질 수 있다. 즉 번역은 가능하면 literal해야 한다. 이상적으로 번역된 정의 모두가 첫 정의에서 의미의 표류를 최소화하는 번역이여야 한다. .
To a DefinedMeaning may be attached other Expressions, which may be in any Language including the Language associated with the DefinedMeaning. Expressions attached to a DefinedMeaning should express the concept defined by the Definition, they should not be translations of the First Expression.
There may be several Expressions from the same Language (i.e., synonyms). Each such match between an Expression and a Definition may be marked as being a good match or not; i.e, if the Expression adequately covers the given concept semantically and/or stylistically.
If the match between a secondary Expression and a Translated Definition for the same Language is good there is no need to add another DefinedMeaning to express that particular concept for the Expression again.
If the match is not good, the combination of the Expression and the Definition may be thought of as an ApproximatedMeaning; and there is a need for a separate DefinedMeaning that does better justice to the Expression in question. It is crucial to not modify the TranslatedDefinition to better match the Expression for the given language, since this will lead to semantic drift. If the Definition does a poor job of expressing the concept of the Expression, another DefinedMeaning should be created, the original should be kept.
The Expression might very well express other concepts and need to be associated with other Definitions to form other DefinedMeanings.
DefinedMeanings may be related to other DefinedMeanings, and the relationship may be classified as for example a narrower term, broader term, part of theme etc. The exact set of classifications that will be used is not yet finalized.
There are two ways in which you will be able to browse the data; you can enter a word in the search box; this will get you your information when it is there. The other way is by finding relations from one DefinedMeaning to another. For this relations have to be entered.
The word German refers in the English definition to a person of German nationality. It translates both to Deutscher and Deutsche. These are however defined as a man of German nationality, and woman of German nationality, respectively. All three DefinedMeanings are required, the German and English words do not have identical meanings.
