Quaestio recensere

  • Possumusne vocabulo articulus pro verbo Anglico article uti?

  • Can we use articulus in place of the English word "article"?


  • Rarely. For encyclopedia/journal article use commentatio, also sometimes pagina or res. Articulus in Latin means "joint" first of all, though it does have other meanings, some of which correspond to English article (see below).
