DERIVED TERMS RELATED TERMS * govern * governance * governor USAGE NOTES In the United States, "government" is considered to be divided into three branches; the legislature (the House of Representatives and the Senate) which makes law, the Administration (under the President) which runs sections of government within the law, and the Courts, which adjudicate on matters of the law. This is a much wider meaning of "government" than exists in other countries where the term "government" means the ruling political force of the prime minister and his/her cabinet ministers (what Americans would call the Administration). In Britain, the administrative organs of the nation are collectively referred to as "the state". In Canada _government_ is used in both senses and neither _state_ nor _administration_ are used. Applied to many countries in continental Europe (when using English), the British usage is common. TRANSLATIONS
