"d.d." latin for "today's date"

language tip of the day: "d.d." is the latin term ("de dato") that can be used for "today's date" or "d.d. January 1st, 2014" (on the date of ...)

"d.d." is used in Norwegian ("dagens/dags dato" [today's date]), but i wasn't aware, until now, that it can also be used in English, although it doesn't seem to be used much.

Sources: ("today's date") ("of the date") ("this day")
