Dictionary

We’d love to welcome readers from all over the world, no matter if English is your native, or a foreign language. As we know from personal experience, it can get pretty hard to understand a foreign language when a lot of “fancy” vocabulary, is used. That is why we try to avoid that on All That Magic. There are, however, a few words that we need to make our texts work. So we thought we’d collect them in a little dictionary for you to look up when you need them.

This is work in progress! You can also help by contacting us, if there is a word that we use very often that you would like us to explain in our dictionary. Just use the contact form at the bottom. Thank you!

  • main character – The main character is the person in a novel, play, movie, etc. is often very important and in many cases, the reader/viewer feels for them the most.
  • plot – This is the main story of a novel, play, movie, etc.
  • setting – When we talk about setting, we talk about everything that has to do with where (planets, countries, weather, but also ’what does a room look like?’) and when (what time period, e.g. 19th century, Iron Age,…) a novel, play, movie, etc. takes place.
  • synopsis – When talking about books, it is a short text that will tell you what the book is about without giving away too much information about the plot.

  1. Die Idee eines Wörterbuches ist großartig! Ich denke, man kann noch Protagonist/Antagonist, Nebencharakter und Schreibstil aufnehmen.

    Was mir aufgefallen ist. Bei allen Punkten, bis auf den ersten, hast du bei der folgenden Aufzählung ein ‘a’: a novel, play, movie, Es ist ne Kleinigkeit, aber Einheitlichkeit ist das I-Tüpfelchen xD
