Wikipedia

  1. authors

    An author is the writer of a book, article, play, or other written work. A broader definition of the word "author" states: "An author is 'the person who originated or gave existence to anything" and whose authorship determines responsibility for what was created.'"Typically, the first owner of a copyright is the person who created the work, i.e. the author. If more than one person created the work (i.e., multiple authors), then a case of joint authorship takes place. Copyright laws differ around the world. The United States Copyright Office, for example, defines copyright as "a form of protection provided by the laws of the United States (title 17, U.S. Code) to authors of 'original works of authorship.'"

    Authors or, The Game of Authors is a card game for three to five players. The first Game of Authors was published by G. M. Whipple & A. A. Smith of Salem, Massachusetts in 1861, and later published by Parker Brothers in 1897. The deck of cards consists of eleven sets of four cards each representing the works of eleven famous authors. The object of the game is to form complete sets of the four cards comprising the works of a particular author. The winner is the player with the most sets. The game is the creation of Anne Abbott, a Beverly, Massachusetts clergyman's daughter and editor of a young people's literary journal. Abbott also designed the hugely popular mid-19th century card game, Dr. Busby. Later decks included additional authors, but the authors represented in the original deck were: ⁕Louisa May Alcott ⁕James Fenimore Cooper ⁕Charles Dickens ⁕Nathaniel Hawthorne ⁕Washington Irving ⁕Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ⁕Sir Walter Scott ⁕William Shakespeare ⁕Robert Louis Stevenson ⁕Alfred, Lord Tennyson ⁕Mark Twain

Examples of authors in a Sentence

    This is supported by the fact that women with the best diabetes control . . . in pregnancy had offspring that performed better academically than offspring of . . . women without diabetes, the authors of this study do endorse this as a possible explanation for their findings.

  4. Naveed Sattar:

    There is good trial evidence that eating foods rich in fibre such as vegetables, can help lower weight, and improve levels of risk factors known to cause heart disease. The present observational study can not overcome such evidence and its conclusions can be debated since the authors may have over adjusted for factors that account for lower intake of vegetables, the results are not surprising. Picking out one single component and assuming just adding it to the diet, e.g., vegetables, is not likely to result in the desired effect.

  5. Charles Caleb Colton:

    The society of dead authors has this advantage over that of the living: they never flatter us to our faces, nor slander us behind our backs, nor intrude upon our privacy, nor quit their shelves until we take them down.
