    Structure and organization

    Hi. Can I use these two words interchangeably in the following context: "President meets diaspora community structures (organizations) in Yerevan."

    Re: Structure and organization

    TheFreeDictionary says 'structure' means 'the manner of construction or organization' but not 'organization'.

    Not a teacher.

    Re: Structure and organization

    I agree with that, but is there a synonym for "organization"?

    In what sense is 'diaspora' being used?

    In fact, nothing. The point is that the Armenian version includes several synonyms of this word, and I can't find an appropriate one. Maybe I can go with "bodies"?

    The word is used in its third meaning.
