free adjective \ˈfrē\ : not costing any money
If you look up the definition of “free” in Webster’s dictionary, there are 15 different variations – each with multiple sub-variations of the adjective. My initial thought is usually the first definition in the list, which I’ve referenced above. But other than the monetary definition, it can also mean free to be efficient, creative, and even error- or stress-free. And these days, it’s nice to have something useful that doesn’t cost a penny.
