What is de jure in lexicology?
Contrary to popular belief, the expression is notis the antonym of the Latin term "de facto", which means "actually" or "in fact". But in the text, both concepts can be used to contrast, and to emphasize that formalities work in practice ("de jure and de facto").
An example of use: "De jure money is administered by the Order of Malta and its branches in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras". That is "the Maltese Order and its branches are formally in charge of money".
Contrast: "Well, this is not de jure, but de facto, the Moscow Dozor is in charge of the Watch of the whole of Russia." That is, "this is not legally registered, but in fact - the Moscow Dozor is in charge of the Watch of the whole of Russia."
