    definition vs meaning

    Hi dear teacher.

    Where should I use the word "meaning" and where use "definition"?

    If the above sentence is not correct, I am sorry, please correct it.
    Thank you in advance.

    In many uses, the two words are interchangeable. In other uses, they are not.

    Have you looked them up in a dictionary?

    Have you looked up the words in a dictionary? If you have, you will have discovered that they can have similar meanings. It depends on the context.
