op. cit.


Explanation:
"a. a. O." is the German abbreviation for "am angegebenen Orte" ("at indicated place") and defintely NOT the equivalent of "ibid." ("ebd." in German). The expression is used in academic writing to omit a bibliographical reference already given before. The most elegant way to translate it into any occidental language ist the latin abbreviation "op. cit." ("opus citatum" - "quoted work" ), followed by a comma and the page indication.

Example:
Shakespeare, William a. a. O., S. 111 =
Shakespeare, William, op. cit., p. 111.
