    Default feature (n), (v)/bear in mind/revalue/a single set/overcome

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?

    The Forum section will feature the film “Я” by Igor Voloshin, who is already known in Berlin for his punk drama, “Nirvana”.

    feature (v) = show the film

    The features of the Tschuktschi pronounce them of American origin.

    feature (n) = the characteristic parts of a person's face: eyes and nose and mouth and chin

    Fear, hope, dismay featured every face.

    feature (v) = have as a feature; show; manifest; betray

    The Government posters feature precisely the same epithets.

    The latest popular actress is featured in this new film.

    feature = play the leading part

    All laboratory men feature in this research.

    feature = promote

    The characters cannot be very minutely featured.

    minutely = in minute detail

    minute = characterized by painstaking care and detailed examination

    feature = depict; picture; portray

    Weather reports are a feature of the morning paper.

    An account of the fire was a feature of the Sunday supplement.

    Bear in mind that, according to the contract made with Turkey, Azerbaijan’s gas from the first phase of Shah Deniz development is being supplied to Turkey at the price of $120 for 1000 cubic meters.

    bear in mind = keep in mind = remember

    However, neither Ankara nor Baku are in any hurry to disclose the revalued cost of Azerbaijan’s gas transfers to Turkey after April 15, 2008, while saying this information is part of a commercial secret.

    revalue = to evaluate anew; reappraise

    According to the arrangements made, these issues are being addressed as a single set.

    a single set = package

    Unlike in recent years, these negotiations are not as smooth – the parties have not been able to overcome some of their disagreements.

    overcome = get over; surmount

    She managed to overcome her shyness.

    We have to overcome temptation.

    overcome temptation = yield to temptation

    I was overcome with grief and rage.

    overcome= seaze; grip

    Many people were overcome by fumes from the burning factory.

    overcome = envelope

    To be overcome by (with) drink.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    To me, it's a bit more than just showing- they will show the film, and it will be the main or one of the main films.
