American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- n. The theory and practice of navigating, especially the charting of a course for a ship or aircraft.
- n. Travel or traffic by vessels, especially commercial shipping.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The act of navigating; the act of moving on water in ships or other vessels; sailing: as, the navigation of the northern seas; also, by extension, the act of “sailing” through the air in a balloon (see aërial navigation, below).
- n. The science or art of directing the course of vessels as they sail from one part of the world to another. The management of the sails, etc., the holding of the assigned course by proper steering, and the working of the ship generally, pertain rather to seamanship, though necessary to successful navigation. The two fundamental problems of navigation are the determination of the ship's position at a given moment, and the decision of the most advantageous course to be steered in order to reach a given point. The methods of solving the first are, in general, four:
- n. Ships in general; shipping.
- n. An artificial waterway, or a part of a natural waterway that has been made navigable; a canal. Also navvy. See navvy.
- n. uncountable The theory, practice and technology of charting a course for a ship, aircraft or a spaceship
- n. uncountable Traffic or travel by vessel, especially commercial shipping
- n. countable A canal
