Basic translation (just a quickie)

Postby 9k0 » Tue Dec 30, 2003 7:51 pm

For a while i've been looking for a translation of the word 'Control' as in 'the control of oneself' or 'control of surrounding events'
I've found rough translations on a couple of online dictionaries but i thought i'd be better to get it from some people who'll know for sure.

Please accept my apologies if these posts are dime-a-dozen.
Thanks for your help

you have a number of options for different types of control:

potestas (power)
dicio (power)
coercitio (check)
imperium (command)
regimen (command)
administratio (management)
moderatio (self-control)

those are all in the nominative singular.
