It's the Wikipedia "definition"   the other key you might be thinking of is
"description".  And yes, good idea i'll add that in.

A 'definition'
"A *definition* is a passage that explains the
meaning<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meaning_(linguistic)> of
a term (a word <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Word>,
phrase<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrase> or
other set of symbols <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbol>), or a type of
thing. The term to be defined is the
*. A term may have many different senses or meanings. For each such specific
sense, a *definiens <http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/definiens>* is a cluster
of words that defines that term."

A 'description'
"*Description* is one of four rhetorical
modes<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhetorical_modes> (also
known as *modes of discourse*), along with
, argumentation <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argumentation>, and
Each of the rhetorical modes is present in a variety of forms and each has
its own purpose <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purpose> and

Both of which are important to use, when describing a VERY complex notion
such as the language of Nullians.
So, to be more precise, i can use osm_wiki_description.. However.  The Wiki
is Wacky... and thus, deserves it's own island.


I'll organize it the same way as potlatch2 island.
IF in the .xml documentation there was some indication of a description, i
would add it in.  Otherwise, i don't want to pick a language of the
osm-wiki.   My Nullish isn't the best just yet.

Thanks for the feedback, i'll get back to the tagging list once the Islands
are more complete.
