Does meditari have a meaning like "measure"?

Using Google (I don't know which dictionary it's quoting), I see ...

However I don't think I'm seeing that in a Latin dictionary, e.g. Lewis and Short or even Wiktionary.

  • No, Latin meditor was primarily used in the sense of “deliberare, considerare” (TLL). – Alex B. Oct 25 '18 at 18:42
  • Well, it's not too far a stretch to render it as "weigh", as in deliberating by weighing your options. – NRitH Oct 27 '18 at 13:55
  • @NRitH of course, but 'weigh' - or rather 'measure' (see the post above) - should not be listed as the primary sense though. – Alex B. Oct 27 '18 at 19:51
