    Autograph and Signature

    What is the differences between "autograph" and "signature"?
    What do fans ask pop stars for? "autograph" or "signature"?
    I hope your answers will help me
    Thanks

    NOT A TEACHER


    Lady [Margaret] Thatcher, the former prime minister of the United Kingdom,

    attended a performance of the ballet. "During intermission there was a

    queue [line] of three or four little girls, all wanting her autograph."

    Re: Autograph and Signature

    A related but different usage is as an adjective (in both cases).

    An autograph [not autographed] copy of a manuscript is written in the author's hand.

    A chef's signature dish is one he's famous for making. (This may be related to the expression 'signature tune'.)
