Books have a few pages at the font that contain some "bureaucratic" details, like title, copyright notices, dedication, etc. How do you call such a page? For example, somebody shows me a page and I identify as a "front" page torn form a book. Do I say, "it's a front page of a book"? How do I say this? ============== I googled a bit and discovered that these pages are known as "front matter". But how do I use this in a sentence? "This page is a front matter"?
