Hi,

Please help understand these two words which I don't understand:

1. feature column
2. editorial

I know that both are associated with newspapers.


Best regards,
K :)

A feature column is one that features a particular topic. It could be genocide, fashion, Hollywood, good and bad diets - anything that you like.

An editorial is the article written by the editor of the newspaper or journal, usually on a current matter.

An editorial is a written opinion on a subject.

It can be written by an editor, but can also be written by a regular columnist.

Dear susiedqq,

"An editorial is a written opinion on a subject.

I beg to differ.

an editorial (n) = an article in a publication expressing the opinion of its editors or publishers or

published or broadcast expression of opinion presented by the editor, publisher, manager, or owner of any medium.

Regards.

Thank you very much for your quick response. I just couldn't find the right definitions in my dictionary.
