This thing has been bothering me for a while. While others can give the meaning of English words I know, no one could give me what the meaning of 'is' is. Whomever I asked the question, they first tried to recall what the meaning was and after floundering for some time, they quickly pronounced me crazy! After some time on the internet, I came reference.com which defined 'is' as 'Third person singular present indicative of be.'
This dilemma was said to be leveraged on by Bill Clinton during his trial. Some say he was the first, but this lady says not so.
There is even a philosophy course at UTexas Austin, that ponders over the meaning of 'is'.
Now, who will answer the question, which came first - The chicken or the egg?
