    Default articles[-ed]

    According to LDCE:
    articles = BrE an agreement by which someone finishes their training, especially as a lawyer; by working for a company
    articled = BrE someone who is articled to a company of lawyers, ACCOUNTING etc, is employed by that company while they are training to become a lawyer etc: an articled clerk
    I wonder what are the American equivalents of
    'articles' and 'articled'.
    Thank you.

    You're digging up some things that I didn't know were specific to BrE.
