## Compare with Definitions

#### Sketch

A rough or unfinished drawing or painting, often made to assist in making a more finished picture

A charcoal sketch

#### Graph

A diagram that exhibits a relationship, often functional, between two sets of numbers as a set of points having coordinates determined by the relationship. Also called plot.

#### Sketch

A short humorous play or performance, consisting typically of one scene in a revue or comedy programme

A hilarious sketch for their latest BBC series

#### Graph

A pictorial device, such as a pie chart or bar graph, used to illustrate quantitative relationships. Also called chart.

#### Sketch

#### Graph

Any of the possible forms of a grapheme.

#### Sketch

A hasty or undetailed drawing or painting often made as a preliminary study.

#### Graph

A written character that represents a vowel, consonant, syllable, word, or other expression and that cannot be further analyzed.

#### Sketch

A brief general account or presentation; an outline.

#### Graph

To represent by a graph.

#### Sketch

A brief, light, or informal literary composition, such as an essay or a short story.

#### Graph

To plot (a function) on a graph.

#### Sketch

(Music) A brief composition, especially for the piano.

#### Graph

A data chart (graphical representation of data) intended to illustrate the relationship between a set (or sets) of numbers (quantities, measurements or indicative numbers) and a reference set, whose elements are indexed to those of the former set(s) and may or may not be numbers.

#### Sketch

A short, often satirical scene or play in a revue or variety show; a skit.

#### Graph

(mathematics) A set of points constituting a graphical representation of a real function; (formally) a set of tuples $(x\_1,\; x\_2,\; \backslash ldots,\; x\_m,\; y)\backslash in\backslash R^\{m+1\}$, where $y=f(x\_1,\; x\_2,\; \backslash ldots,\; x\_m)$ for a given function $f:\; \backslash R^m\backslash rightarrow\backslash R$. See also Graph of a function Category:en:Curves Category:en:Functions

#### Sketch

(Informal) An amusing person.

#### Graph

(graph theory) A set of vertices (or nodes) connected together by edges; (formally) an ordered pair of sets $(V,E)$, where the elements of $V$ are called vertices or nodes and $E$ is a set of pairs (called edges) of elements of $V$. See also Graph (discrete mathematics)

#### Sketch

To make a sketch of; outline.

#### Graph

(topology) A topological space which represents some graph (ordered pair of sets) and which is constructed by representing the vertices as points and the edges as copies of the real interval [0,1] (where, for any given edge, 0 and 1 are identified with the points representing the two vertices) and equipping the result with a particular topology called the graph topology.

#### Sketch

To make a sketch.

#### Graph

A morphism $\backslash Gamma\_f$ from the domain of $f$ to the product of the domain and codomain of $f$, such that the first projection applied to $\backslash Gamma\_f$ equals the identity of the domain, and the second projection applied to $\backslash Gamma\_f$ is equal to $f$.

#### Sketch

(ambitransitive) To make a brief, basic drawing.

I usually sketch with a pen rather than a pencil.

#### Graph

A graphical unit on the token-level, the abstracted fundamental shape of a character or letter as distinct from its ductus (realization in a particular typeface or handwriting on the instance-level) and as distinct by a grapheme on the type-level by not fundamentally distinguishing meaning.

#### Sketch

(transitive) To describe briefly and with very few details.

He sketched the accident, sticking to the facts as they had happened.

#### Graph

(transitive) To draw a graph.

#### Sketch

A rapidly executed freehand drawing that is not intended as a finished work, often consisting of a multitude of overlapping lines.

#### Graph

To draw a graph of a function.

#### Sketch

A rough design, plan, or draft, as a rough draft of a book.

#### Graph

A curve or surface, the locus of a point whose coördinates are the variables in the equation of the locus; as, a graph of the exponential function.

#### Sketch

A brief description of a person or account of an incident; a general presentation or outline.

I have to write a character sketch for a novel study.

#### Graph

A diagram symbolizing a system of interrelations of variable quantities using points represented by spots, or by lines to represent the relations of continuous variables. More than one set of interrelations may be presented on one graph, in which case the spots or lines are typically distinguishable from each other, as by color, shape, thickness, continuity, etc. A diagram in which relationships between variables are represented by other visual means is sometimes called a graph, as in a bar graph, but may also be called a chart.

#### Sketch

A brief, light, or unfinished dramatic, musical, or literary work or idea; especially a short, often humorous or satirical scene or play, frequently as part of a revue or variety show.

#### Graph

A drawing illustrating the relations between certain quantities plotted with reference to a set of axes

#### Sketch

A brief musical composition or theme, especially for the piano.

#### Graph

#### Sketch

(informal) An amusing person.

#### Sketch

A lookout; vigilant watch for something.

To keep sketch

#### Sketch

(UK) A humorous newspaper article summarizing political events, making heavy use of metaphor, paraphrase and caricature.

#### Sketch

(category theory) A formal specification of a mathematical structure or a data type described in terms of a graph and diagrams (and cones (and cocones)) on it. It can be implemented by means of “models”, which are functors which are graph homomorphisms from the formal specification to categories such that the diagrams become commutative, the cones become limiting (i.e., products), the cocones become colimiting (i.e., sums).

#### Sketch

Sketchy, shady, questionable.

#### Sketch

An outline or general delineation of anything; a first rough or incomplete draught or plan of any design; especially, in the fine arts, such a representation of an object or scene as serves the artist's purpose by recording its chief features; also, a preliminary study for an original work.
