An Expression is a combination of characters (e.g. m-a-i-n) that make up a word or a phrase in a specific language (e.g. English).

The word "main" in English and "main" in French have the same spelling, but are two different expressions (because they have different languages)

Browsing an expression page[edit]

For an example of an expression page, you can click on Expression:hand.

One or several definitions are shown, and each definition (corresponding to a different DefinedMeaning) can be clicked to expand it and view a list of definitions, translations, and annotations.

When more than one Language exists for that word, tabs will appear on top of the page.
