WHAT DOES PROPERTY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Property

In abstraction, property is that which belongs to or with something, whether as an attribute or as a component of said thing. For the significant context of this article, property is one or more components, whether physical or incorporeal, of a person's estate; or so belonging to, as in being owned by, a person or jointly a group of people or a legal entity like a corporation or even a society. Depending on the nature of the property, an owner of property has the right to consume, alter, share, redefine, rent, mortgage, pawn, sell, exchange, transfer, give away or destroy it, or to exclude others from doing these things, as well as perhaps to abandon it; whereas regardless of the nature of the property, the owner thereof has the right to properly use it, or at the very least exclusively keep it. Property that jointly belongs to more than one party may be possessed or controlled thereby in very similar or very distinct ways, whether simply or complexly, whether equally or unequally. However, there is an expectation that each party's will with regard to the property be clearly defined and unconditional, so as to distinguish ownership and easement from rent.

Definition of property in the English dictionary

The first definition of property in the dictionary is something of value, either tangible, such as land, or intangible, such as patents, copyrights, etc. Other definition of property is the right to possess, use, and dispose of anything. Property is also possessions collectively or the fact of owning possessions of value.

1
Saint Ambrose
God created the universe in such a manner that all in common might derive their food from it, and that the Earth should also be a property common to all.
2
Paddy Ashdown
We have to make their livelihoods viable, get them the proper prices for their produce, try and make them stay rather than sell their property and leave again.
3
John Perry Barlow
I personally think intellectual property is an oxymoron. Physical objects have a completely different natural economy than intellectual goods. It's a tricky thing to try to own something that remains in your possession even after you give it to many others.
4
John Bercow
Sally is my wife, but not my chattel or my property.
5
Neill Blomkamp
When any young director gets hired by a studio to do a $125 million film based on a preexisting piece of intellectual property, they're climbing into the meat grinder. And what you're coming out with on the other side is a generic, heavily studio-controlled pile of garbage that ends up on the side of Burger King wrappers.
6
Michael Bloomberg
Trees will improve property values, take pollutants out of the air, help with water runoff.
7
Earl Blumenauer
A property in the 100-year floodplain has a 96 percent chance of being flooded in the next hundred years without global warming. The fact that several years go by without a flood does not change that probability.
8
Liu Bolin
I chose to camouflage my body into the environment because this way, people will pay more attention to the background's social property, and the meaning of my body disappeared in this environment as an individual.
9
Henry Bonilla
Part of the American dream is to own your own property - something no one can take from you.
10
Dave Brat
