homonyms and meanings[edit]

Will the two French words boxer /bɔ (a verb : to box) and boxer /bɔk.sɛʁ/ (a noun : a race of dog) be the same expression ? I guess that an expression should be a collection of words which belongs to the same language, are homograph and homophone, and share etymology and grammatical properties.

An Expression is a string of characters that are the same. Consequently there is only one French Expression for boxer. Attributes like pronunciation are not associated on the Expression level. All the attributes that you refer to, will be on the level of the SynTrans table. GerardM 23:24, 23 March 2006 (CET)
So my guess was wrong;) Thanks for your explanations. Ske

Noob hear...[edit]

The following two sentences make no sense when read together (although I can understand each individually).

"The Expression table is a table in the database. It is a combination of characters that make up a word or a phrase."

Could it be written (I am too noob to be bold);

"An Expression is made up of a combination of characters that form a word or a phrase. In OmegaWiki, an Expression is stored in the Expression table of the database".?

Is this documentation user oriented or tech oriented? Most people aren’t interested on what’s going on in the database. All they want to know in a nutshell is the relationship between defined meaning and expression--Joelemaltais 14:09, 23 November 2008 (EST)
