Which word works best for "Chapter"

Postby rmansker » Fri Nov 04, 2011 4:33 pm

canonus and capitulus both can mean "chapter." I am wondering which has a better essence of "Chapter in a Book."

Thanks!

Caput or capitulum for a chapter in a book, I would say, rmansker, but neither of "canonus" [sic] or "capitulus" [sic]. // caput capitulumve libri dicam, rmansker, non quod scripsisti.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
