# Definition talk:Ostensive Definition

The question:

? stipulative is a different page...

Yes it is. This is an example of an ostensive definition. It's being used to define the symbol $:=$ which is used in the specification of a stipulative definition. It's deliberately confusing for comic effect. --prime mover 04:04, 16 June 2012 (EDT)
