I have to change the formatting of a paper to CMS and I have a simple question (I don't have the CMS handy, obviosly).

How do I cite multiple pages by a single author in the text (not in the bibliography)?

For example, let's say I want to cite Smith's 1997 book, pages 1 and 2 in reference to a certain definition:

The word "chicken" is commonly thought to mean "poultry" (Smith 1997, 1, 2)

That looks strange! Any of you guys know how it should be?

You'd want to see 15.7 "Basic structure of an in-text citation" in the 16th edition.

I believe that then you use "pp." (pages), e.g. pp. 1, 3, 6.

p. - for single page
pp. - for multiple individual pages (e.g. pp. 1, 3, 6)
pp. can be omitted for page ranges (e.g. pp. 1-8, pp. 1-23, pp. 156-9, pp. 238-42)

No <pp> in CMS Feb 7, 2011

I don't think CMS uses pp or p... If I understand correctly, pages are seperated by the year only be a comma.
