Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Weekly Themes Recapitulate
#218274 08/25/14 09:21 AM OP Recapitulate does not mean 'to capitulate again', but this raises the question: How did capitulate come to mean what it does?
'Capitulate' comes from Latin capitulum, 'chapter'. It originally meant 'to draw up terms of surrender (chapter by chapter)'.
