Description:
------------
At the objects page, 'object' is not defined.  It isn't defined in the chapter on 
objects and classes, either.  For presentation purposes and clarity, it should be 
defined.

I tried pasting the below into "expected results", but it did not show up in the 
preview:

This is my favorite definition: In computer science, an object type (a.k.a. 
wrapping object) is a datatype which is used in object-oriented programming to 
wrap a non-object type to make it look like a dynamic object.  In other words, an 
'object' is a 'variable' made from a 'non-variable'.

The manual also doesn't define what a variable is, nor what a type is, nor what a function is. While the manual's pretty accessible to new programmers, I don't think it's the job of the PHP manual to act as an introduction to people who are completely new to programming concepts; I honestly think we're better off leaving that to authors who aim specifically at and write well for that group of people.
