I don't know how you entered them, but you need to enter them one at a time probably. If you put in the whole phrase, it may not have recognized that as a word. IRRATIONALLY ERRATIC would mean no reason, just doing something on impulse or without giving any thought to it. VINDICTIVENESS ARE INDEFENSIBLE vindictive means revenge, and indefensible means not protected, or not justified in doing something. SO I would take vindictiveness are indefensible as meaning revenge or getting back at someone is not justified. Here's the link I found those on: http://www.m-w.com/dictionary.htm And like I said, just put in one word at a time that you don't understand.

hmm you have to search for the meaning individually the other one actually is an adjective of the term after the first word.

My English is not powerful to understand all the words too. I just know the irrational and the indefensible. But I don't know about the erratic and vindictiveness. Now I know the meaning by reading the comments left by other helpful mylotters above. What they recommended are correct, you should enter the root word, one by one, when you look it up using the online dictionary. I always use www.meriam.com when I want to check the meaning of some words. It's very descriptive, but you need to read all them, and identify which one suits best for your context. irrationally erratic - always changing, without any reason vindictiveness are indefensible - can not be protected from being hurt or revenge. Hope this help and have a great day diansinta!

Hi diansinta, I am sorry I have made a silly typo mistake. The URL should be http://www.merriam-webster.com/ instead of the one posted earlier. Hope you could check it out by now. It's really a good site for English thesaurus and vocabulary reference. It's especially useful when you have some words in doubt while doing mylot. Good luck and happy posting!

When you look at reference books like that of dictionaries, you should always get the root words of the words you are looking for and then, consider the prefixes which alters the whole meaning of the word. You mentioned "irrationally erratic" which are two separate words. Rational is the root word for "irrationally" which means based on or in accordance with reason or logic the prefic "ir-" makes it a negative while the "-ly" at the end makes it an adjective to decribe the following word which is erratic that means not even or regular in pattern or movement

I have to agree with Signal. You need to look up each word individually. They have given you a pretty good sense of what the phrases mean.
