What is different between paper and article?


Tloca23 profile picture Tloca23November 2021
Here are some examples of English definitions of “paper” and “article”:

Paper - material manufactured in thin sheets from the pulp of wood or other fibrous substances, used for writing, drawing, or printing on, or as wrapping material.
”a sheet of paper”


Paper - an essay or thesis, especially one read at an academic lecture or seminar or published in an academic journal.
”he published a highly original paper on pattern formation”

And for Article:

Article- a particular item or object.
”small household articles”


Article- a piece of writing included with others in a newspaper, magazine, or other publication.
”an article about middle-aged executives”

But if I can simplify all of that. The common understanding in the general public is that paper is something you write on (sheet or piece of paper) or something you write for schooling (an assignment) whereas an article is usually something someone writes that is published in the newspaper, online, in a book and etc.

I hope that helps too! I know English can have so many different meanings/slangs/connotations etc. So, my goodness, I’m sure it’s exhausting to learn besides being your native language 😊

    Yep! Also in the states we’ll refer to “did you read the paper” which refers to the local newspaper more common for older generations who get their news from physical print rather than from their smart phone or computer.

"Paper" has a broader meaning, and can be used to describe an article, essay, dissertation, or document. "Article" is a written composition, usually nonfiction, on a specific topic, normally as part of a book or other publication (for example a newspaper or magazine).

It is not difficult to understand the difference between paper and article. Some people thought these two were similar but that's not right articles are published in magazines and based on the research work while paper are presented at some conference and to buy assignment for other such kind of events. I hope this information proves helpful for understanding this difference.

Hello! I would like to tell you about one of my favourite TV shows from the 1960s was “The Andy Griffith Show” as it was really funny and interesting to watch with the whole family. Such evenings are in my memory forever. I often create powerpoint presentation ideas for my future essays related to this show.
