Word of the day


adv. Abbr. ib. or ibid.

In the same place. Used in footnotes and bibliographies to refer to the book, chapter, article, or page cited just before.

[Latin ibdem. See i- in Indo-European Roots.]

One can use ibid. repeatedly, given that a source is clearly identified; Once a new source is cited, ibid. refers to that source.
