Article

In publishing, a non-fiction piece published in a magazine or newspaper.

In grammar (and typography), an article is, in English, one of three adjectives—'a', an, and the—used to merely identify a noun as a noun, rather than attribute some trait to it (as is the case with conventional adjectives), as in "a trout" or "the sponge." (Other languages also have similar words.) The word article itself was originally used to refer to any clause, point, or statement in a contract or formal agreement (such as with God), and originally derives from the Latin word artus, meaning "joint," its sense eventually coming to mean "distinct parts," as in the word "articulate," which can mean to either pronounce each part of a statement distinctly or to possess distinct parts (or joints), as a limb.
