Articulation Definition from Social Science Dictionaries & Glossaries
The Knighthood, Chivalry & Tournaments Arms and Armour Glossary
The technique for joining plates together using rivets . In order to work properly, the rivets must be nearly parallel and optimally opposite one another to work. Frequently, poor articulation is the reason that many reproduction harnesses might look like the real thing but don't move like them. It is one of the more difficult arts for the armourer to learn. Plates that articulate together should not produce gaps, places where weapons might force their way in, where pieces can freeze in an awkward position (it happens!) or come apart. Much more difficult than it sounds....

Articulation Definition from Medicine Dictionaries & Glossaries
Dictionary of Medicine (Shahram)
The joining of two structures. From the Latin "articulus," meaning a joint. There are diverse application of the word "articulation" including: (1) in medicine, the place where bones come together, that is the joint; (2) in dentistry, the place where teeth come together, the occlusal surfaces of the teeth; and (3) in speech, the production of intelligible words and sentences, again by joining, but in this case by joining together properly the structures such as the lips, tongue and palate needed to articulate speech.
