    Re: Word 4

    I think you might have the wrong word:
    Definate- Definate (Def·i·nate) (def´ĭ-nāt) trademark for a preparation of docusate sodium.
    (http://www.mercksource.com/pp/us/cns...Pzhtm#12282877)
    Specific- adjecetive/Specify a verb

    Re: Word 4

    'Define' is a verb meaning to state or set forth a meaning and I'm assuming by 'definate' you mean 'definite' which is realted to 'define' but it's an adjective meaning: clearly defined or determined, 'pecify' is a verb meaning: to mention or name definitely. 'Specific' is the related adjective meaning: having a special application, being definite, explicit
