Philology Matters


The article deals with the problems of news editing, common errors, shortcomings and the reasons of this kind of mistakes.
Use of an incorrect word in a text demonstrates that journalists need to know the meaning of every word they use. If this occurs because a journalist is inexperienced or young, the editor has to shoulder all the responsibility. An incorrect word, a phrase or a sign has been found to be confusing for readers in many circumstances. It is recommended that using words that can cause arguments or change the meaning of the text should be avoided.
The phrases such as “the weight of a word, feeling the word” can be utilized in journalistic genres. A journalist, who knows the meaning of words and who can feel the word, can express his or her ideas in brief texts. This ability is developed because of non-stop reading, researching and editing frequently. In many circumstances, a word or a phrase, proverbs are used unsuitably. Correspondents are likely to use them without thinking or not understanding the real meaning. Sometimes, they cannot find words, which are “on the tip of their tongue”, but editors do.
In conclusion, being an editor requires a person to have broad horizons, vigilance, attention to detail and high level of literacy and many other qualities. These qualities are formed through hard study. In order to achieve this,The Creative Union of Journalists of Uzbekistan and its regional offices, and relevant funds should work systematically. Apart from that, in order to reduce the number of errors editors make, it is vital to create dictionaries and handbooks for frequently made mistakes.
