# \description

## Syntax

 \description{...}... {...} text ... text

## Description

Actually there is no predefined command \description. Instead, you can use \definedescription to define a command (whose name is arbitrary) to typeset a headword as distinct from its description.

Note: use \par to separate the items

## Example

```\definedescription[description][location=top,headstyle=bold]
\description{icon}
An icon is a representation of an action or the name of a computer
program. Icons are frequently used in operating systems on several
computer platforms. \par
