    Unhappy Confusing words

    Hi,

    I am confused with these words. Could you please help me?

    1) Words is the official journal/magazine of the Linguistic Association. ( Journal or magazine ? I can't see the difference.)

    2) Pauline's play has been playing/acting/producing/running in the west End for the past year (I think it's producing, but is that correct?)

    3) The star of the circus was a/an acting/performing/playing/dramatic seal, which did incredible tricks. ( an acting seal?)

    4) Nigel Kennedy, the known/recognised/defamed/celebrated violinist, will perform at the concert. ( celebrated violinist?)

    Thank you very much.

    Hmm... "known" sounds a bit more awkward than the other terms...
