Hi, I would appreciate your help with a few terms on construction, specifically regarding mortar.

Am I right to assume that when mentioned regle it is referring to a straightedge?

Context is:
"-El regle se coloca sobre el plano que no se va a revestir inicialmente. Se sitúa de forma longitudinal a la arista alineando ésta con el canto del regle. Se adhiere el regle al soporte mediante un ***cordón de mortero*** de pequeño espesor (2-3 mm) de forma que sobresalga la cara del regle que está biselada respecto a la superficie que se va a revestir y se nivela. "

Thanks :)
