Difference in meaning ??
Hi ,
What is the semantic distinction between " correspondent " and " reporter" ?
Thanks in advance

a correspondent reports news from a particular country, while the reporter collects and reports from home or wherever:)
Let �s see what the native speakers have to say...

Thank you Sophia .. You �ve been so helpful. What really confused me were the meanings of the two words in Longman dictionary :
correpondent : someone who is employed by a newspaper or a television station etc to report news from a particular area or on a particular subject =  journalist
while ..
reporter : someone whose job is to write about news events for a newspaper, or to tell people about them on television or on the radio

Yes, I like Sophia �s explanations better than the dictionary �s.
