    essence of

    The essence of teamwork is to share duties and responsibilities. So, if she carries out all responsibilities, soon she will burn out .

    Can I say '' The essence of a newspaper is to be published every day not every week.'' Should I use the word ''concept'' instead?

    Are my sentences proper English?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Re: essence of

    The first is fine, but I would change the second. Many newspapers are published on Sundays only, but they're still newspapers.
