You may define or use a list style that gives you the required indents or numbering but it is only typographical layout with some automatic numbering.
Given the examples I can see no reason why the standard list styles won't do the job.
If instead you want lists where the word is aligned to the left and the definition aligns to an inset indent then you need to use a "hanging indent" which is formed with First line Indent with a following tab.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 28, 2011 5:23 PM (in response to PeterBreis0807)An illustration of setting a hanging indent:
Drag the triangle (paragraph margin stop) to the right. The rectangle (First line indent) will move with it. Place the triangle where you want the definition to start, then drag the rectangle left to where you want the item to start.
The 'First line indent' applies to the first line of a paragraph. The return key inserts a Paragraph break, making the next line the 'first line' of a new paragraph. To keep the definition as part of the same paragraph, use shift-return at the end of the item name, and return only at the end of the definition.
