Defining vocabulary

From Teflpedia

Defining vocabulary consists of the vocabulary used to write definitions, either in a particular dictionary or dictionaries in general.

It’s important in second language learning that the defining vocabulary used in a monolingual dictionary for a particular definition is simpler and more common than the word being defined. Otherwise, learners may not be able to understand the definition.
