I've come across a sentence as following:
Denotation is a translation of a sign to its meaning, precisely to its literal meaning, more or less like dictionaries try to define it.
I got confused with "more or less like dictionaries try to define it". My questions are:
Is this part grammatically correct? I believe "like" is a preposition?
If I put it this way:"more or less like how dictionaries try to define it", would it sound more natural?
