Usage notes edit

Often coupled with ut

  1. Such that "ita x, ut y" = "so/thus x, as y"
    Non ita loquimur, ut physicī.
    We do not say so/thus, as the physicists do.

However, if one finds the reverse with ut preceding ita, the meaning is different.

  1. "ut x, ita y" = "as x, so y"; "just as x, so too y"
  2. alternatively, "ut x, ita y" = "although x, yet y"

The terms ita and ut together ("ita ut") can be translated as "just as".
