 Region - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The word "region" is taken from the Latin regio, and a number of countries have borrowed the term as the formal name for a type of subnational entity (eg, the región, used in Chile).

Such a distinction is often made on the basis of a historical, political, or cultural cohesiveness that separates the region from its neighbours.
