Equivocal, univocal and derivative names

  
Paragraph 1 Things are said to be named 'equivocally' when, though they have a common name, the definition corresponding with the name differs for each.
Paragraph 2 On the other hand, things are said to be named 'univocally' which have both the name and the definition answering to the name in common.
Paragraph 3 Things are said to be named 'derivatively', which derive their name from some other name, but differ from it in termination.
