Lookup English Definition:

OR    : ['ɔr] [ɚ]
-or \-or\ suff. [L. -or: cf. OF. -or, -ur, -our, F. -eur.]
1. A noun suffix denoting an act; a state or quality; as in
error, fervor, pallor, candor, etc.
[1913 Webster]

2. A noun suffix denoting an agent or doer; as in auditor,
one who hears; donor, one who gives; obligor, elevator. It
is correlative to -ee. In general -or is appended to words
of Latin, and -er to those of English, origin. See {-er}.
[1913 Webster]


Or \Or\ ([^o]r), conj. [OE. or, outher, other, auther, either,
or, AS. [=a]w[eth]er, contr. from [=a]hwae[eth]er; [=a] aye
hwae[eth]er whether. See {Aye}, and {Whether}, and cf.
{Either}.]
A particle that marks an alternative; as, you may read or may
write, -- that is, you may do one of the things at your
pleasure, but not both. It corresponds to {either}. You may
ride either to London or to Windsor. It often connects a
series of words or propositions, presenting a choice of
either; as, he may study law, or medicine, or divinity, or he
may enter into trade.
[1913 Webster]

If man's convenience, health,
Or safety interfere, his rights and claims
Are paramount. --Cowper.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Or may be used to join as alternatives terms expressing
unlike things or ideas (as, is the orange sour or
sweet?), or different terms expressing the same thing
or idea; as, this is a sphere, or globe.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Or sometimes begins a sentence. In this case it
expresses an alternative or subjoins a clause differing
from the foregoing. "Or what man is there of you, who,
if his son shall ask him for a loaf, will give him a
stone?" --Matt. vii. 9 (Rev. Ver.).
[1913 Webster] Or for either is archaic or poetic.
[1913 Webster]

Maugre thine heed, thou must for indigence
Or steal, or beg, or borrow thy dispence.
--Chaucer.
[1913 Webster]


Or \Or\, prep. & adv. [AS. ?r ere, before. [root]204. See {Ere},
prep. & adv.]
Ere; before; sooner than. [Obs.]
[1913 Webster]

But natheless, while I have time and space,
Or that I forther in this tale pace. --Chaucer.
[1913 Webster]

{Or ever}, {Or ere}. See under {Ever}, and {Ere}.
[1913 Webster]


Or \Or\, n. [F., fr. L. aurum gold. Cf. {Aureate}.] (Her.)
Yellow or gold color, -- represented in drawing or engraving
by small dots.
[1913 Webster]
