For years I've been using the term "op cit" to do citations, and wondering what it was actually an abbreviation for (some of us got no Latin at school). It turns out that it is
short for the Latin phrase opera citato, meaning "in the work already cited."
which is of course how I use it, but it's nice to know the actual latin, and has the bonus of helping me understand the word opera as well :-)
