Meaning of Newspaper
What is a Newspaper:
A newspaper is a regularly published print media that seeks to account for the most relevant current events. The word, as such, comes from Latin periodĭcus, and this, in turn, comes from the Greek περιοδικός (periodikós).
The newspaper is a printed or digital publication that presents, in chronological or thematic order, the news, opinions or announcements about the most important events that occurred in a place during a certain period of time. In this sense, it can be national, regional or local in scope.
Newspapers can be classified according to the time interval in which they are published. So we have the newspaper, which is published every day, and the weekly, which is published weekly.
Also, depending on the time of day they come out, newspapers can be divided into morning, if published in the morning, or evening, when they come out in the afternoon.
In the same way, they can be classified according to the type of format they use: it will be classic if it is composed of eight columns, or tabloid or small, when it only has five.
The word newspaper not only refers to the physical medium (printed on paper), but also to the organization or society that is responsible for its publication.
Periodic can also be an adjective to refer to something that occurs with a certain temporal regularity. For example: "I pay my uncle a regular visit."
