    Re: summary v. wrap-up

    That American dictionary says it does.

    It's not used in British English.

    Yes, it does.


    For example,

    And here's a wrap-up of today's main news.
    =
    And here's a summary of today's main news.

    Re: summary v. wrap-up

    In some textbooks, at the end of a chapter, a chapter summary is given so is it also a chapter wrap-up?

    Thank you.

    Summary is the usual term. "Wrap-up" would look somewhat forced to me: possible but not very natural.
    I am not a teacher.
