English term or phrase: capitol
Each ambassador of Latin America has to call back to his capitol for instructions.

Alguém pode me dizer o que significa capitol neste contexto?
Só conhecia Capitol com a letra C maiúscula (Capitólio). Mas aparentemente capitol com C minúscula quer dizer outra coisa.

disagree  Daniel Tavares: Se for typo, não é o C maiúsculo. Não tenho notícias de Capitol em outros lugares fora o comumente conhecido como Capitólio.

  -> Yes, you are correct. For some reason when I saw the asker's question, I was mistakenly drawn toward his typing of the word Capitolio and I mistakenly thought that could be used for other countries capital cities.
