    n.

    1) a)The return of a portion of the output of a process or system to the input, especially when used to maintain performance or to control a system or process.
    b) The portion of the output so returned.
    c) Sound created when a transducer such as a microphone or electric guitar picks up sound from a speaker connected to an amplifier and regenerates it back through the amplifier.
    2) The return of information about the result of a process or activity; an evaluative response: asked the students for feedback on the new curriculum.
    3) The process by which a system, often biological or ecological, is modulated, controlled, or changed by the product, output, or response it produces.

    Unless the subject is computers or electronics, definition 2 is usually intended. If somebody says "I want some feedback on this" that means he wants to hear some opinions about it (whatever "it" might happen to be).
