Prohibit British article (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ban

Here is my best explanation:

'prohibit' is the definition.

(banning is a kind of prohibiting)

'british article' is the subsidiary indication.

'british' becomes 'b' (abbreviation e.g. in 'BBC').

'article' becomes 'an' (example of the part-of-speech).

'b'+'an'='ban'

(Other definitions for ban that I've seen before include "Officially prohibit", "Prohibit", "Proscribe", "'Forbid, prohibit (3)'", "Embargo", "Censor or proscribe", "Veto", "Bar, prohibition" and "Prohibition".)
