[html5] Confusion about <article> tag

I've only been looking at html5 for 2 weeks, so forgive my ignorance, but I find the <article> tag to be confusing. This is because I think of the tag to describe an 'article' which may/can reside somewhere in the page being viewed, whereas if I understand correctly) it refers to content which links to something which is on another page, or another site?  So wouldn't it be clearer if it was called <external>?  (cf rel="external")

Any clarification gratefully received.
