    Re: feature column and editorial

    A feature column is one that features a particular topic. It could be genocide, fashion, Hollywood, good and bad diets - anything that you like.

    An editorial is the article written by the editor of the newspaper or journal, usually on a current matter.

    Dear susiedqq,

    "An editorial is a written opinion on a subject.

    It can be written by an editor, but can also be written by a regular columnist."

    I beg to differ.

    an editorial (n) = an article in a publication expressing the opinion of its editors or publishers or

    published or broadcast expression of opinion presented by the editor, publisher, manager, or owner of any medium.

    Regards.

    V.
