Is there a Science for Definitions?

What is a definition? I mean, is it something that has some meaning in some context?

For example, what is information? How can I define information? It depends on the context, right? Therefore, some pre-established context needs to be defined. But, what is a context?       Ok, you are getting bored...

Anyway, I was thinking about the importance of definitions for scientific work. So, I was wondering about some scientific way to make definitions. Is it an ontology? What do you think?

A put this question in a Forum about Artificial General Intelligence. See here what happened.
