The time that we spent in class trying to define the word “try” was a good experience for myself, I personally have never been asked to define a word on my own. Usually I would have to use a dictionary, but even defining a simple word like “try” wasn’t the easiest thing to do. I personally think that everybody looks at different things in completely different ways, the word try to me means to put effort into doing something. When Bill started talking about how the dictionary didn’t fall out of the sky, and google was created by people to it got me thinking. If some ordinary people made the dictionary, then why not try.
