Announcement: Important Latin Terms and Abbreviations

You might have noticed in my writing and lecturing, I use a few Latin terms that you should know:

NB, nota bene. This means “note well” or “pay attention to this.”

e.g., exempli gratia. This means “for the sake of an example” or “for example.” It is used to show examples.

i.e., id est. This means “that is.” It is used to explain or restate or clarify a point.
