Widows and Orphans are lines of text that appear at the beginning or end of a paragraph, which is left alone at the top or bottom of a line. There is some debate about the exact definitions of these terms but as a rule of thumb:

  • Orphan: A is a single word or very short line, that appears at the end of a paragraph or the beginning of a column or a page, separated from the rest of the text.
