    Smile Topic or Subject?

    Hi

    What's the difference between the topic of a conversation and the subject of a conversation?

    I know roughly what they are, but I need a better definition. It would be great if you could help me. =)

    Thanks!

    Default Re: Topic or Subject?

    The more serious the discussion, the more likely I'd be to use 'subject'.
