Could "du coin" substitute for "local" in the context of a local newspaper?
Freeform Writing Exercise A1
Thank you Paul! ( off to Specsavers!!) .
We have added régional.
Bonne Continuation !
In a British English context a local news paper shop may be referred to as "a (the) corner shop" whether it is situated on a physical corner or not.
I don't know of the actual newspaper taking such a term as local unless it features exclusively the local area news.
Hope this answers your query?
Hi Frank, I don’t think that “le journal du coin” sounds right for the local paper, but maybe “le journal régional” might be an acceptable alternative to “le journal local”.
