Definition
Let [ilmath](X,\mathcal{ J })[/ilmath] be a topological space, we say that it is locally path-connected or is a locally path-connected (topological space) (Caveat:path-connected is a related but distinct concept) if it satisfies the following property^{[1]}:
- [ilmath]\exists\mathcal{B}\in\mathcal{P}(\mathcal{P}(X))\forall B\in\mathcal{B}[B\text{ is } [/ilmath][ilmath]\text{path-connected} [/ilmath][ilmath]][/ilmath] - TODO: Presumably[ilmath]B[/ilmath] is considered as a subspace of [ilmath]X[/ilmath].
- In words: [ilmath](X,\mathcal{ J })[/ilmath] is locally path-connected if it admits a basis of path-connected (open by definition) subsets of [ilmath]X[/ilmath].

- Locally path-connected implies locally connected
- Every open set of a locally path-connected space is locally path-connected
- If a space is locally path-connected then it connected if and only if it is path-connected
- If a space is locally path-connected then the path-connected-components of the space are equal to its connected-components
