Companies and organisations are often divided into different offices or departments, but what do you call further subdivisions? In my language we use the word corresponding to "section", so at my Uni, for instance, the communications office is further divided into different "sections", such as the "section" for student recruitment; the "section" for conferences and events and so on. However, when I look up "section" in Merriam-Webster, there is no entry that fits this use of the word, and when I look at different organisations in the UK, I can't find anything supporting this use of the word. So, my questions now are:
- Can "section" be used in this way?
- If it can't be used in this way, what would be a more natural word to use?
