Paragraph \Par"a*graph\, n. [F. paragraphe, LL. paragraphus, fr.
   Gr. para`grafos (sc. grammh`) a line or stroke drawn in the
   margin, fr. paragra`fein to write beside; para` beside +

   Paraph.]
   1. Originally, a marginal mark or note, set in the margin to
      call attention to something in the text, e. g., a change
      of subject; now, the character [para], commonly used in
      the text as a reference mark to a footnote, or to indicate
      the place of a division into sections.
      [1913 Webster]

   Note: This character is merely a modification of a capital P
         (the initial of the word paragraph), the letter being
         reversed, and the black part made white and the white
         part black for the sake of distinctiveness.
         [1913 Webster]

   2. A distinct part of a discourse or writing; any section or

      [para], but usually, by beginning the first sentence of
      the paragraph on a new line and at more than the usual
      distance from the margin, also called indenting the line.
      See indentation[4].
