DATE ‘N’ DEAD ?!

Dateline OR Deadline?

 

 

Is there any difference between “dateline” and “deadline”? Are these words interchangeable?

ANSWER

Dateline refers to a line in a newspaper article that gives the date and the place of origin.

Deadline” however, refers to the date or time a task needs to be completed.

Given the different meanings, we should NOT use these words interchangeably.

 

p/s: Reason why I was confused was because a colleague of mine was saying “dateline” when she actually meant DEADLINE. Sometimes people don’t know the correct pronunciation I guess!

Just observe and listen carefully to how these people pronounce these words below. Or you might wanna give it a try yourself!

| EGG | BED | LEG | HEAD | DEAD |

goodluck!
