Constitution is literally, what something is made of and where things can get a little complex. Here we will be looking at defintions, diction, semantics and etymology.
Definition: Constitution - (noun) - the way in which a thing is composed or made up ; what something is constituted of Definition: Constitute (root word - verb) - to compose ; to from ; {word history} from the latin constitūtus
Obviously then, political constitutions; are consitutes of diction, semantics and etymology, philosophy and theology.
Definition: diction - (noun) - the way in which a thing is composed or made up ; what something is constituted of Definition: semantics (noun) - the study of meaning, or an interpretation of the meaning, of a word, sign, sentence, etc. Definition: semantic (root word - adjective) - pertaining to, or arising from the different meanings of words or other symbols; {word history} from the Greek sēmantikós - σεμαντικος Definition: etymology - (noun) - the history of a word ; the study of the history of words ; {word history - etymology} from the Greek etymología (os)
A study of history, will confirm that a political constitution (the American Constitution or the Constitution) emerges from a philosophy, which inturn emerges, or is a a development of, a theology both of which are also constituted from (and constituents of) defintions, diction, semantics and etymology.
