I've been wondering... jsut what is the difference between 新聞 and 新聞紙. I've learned them both to mean "Newspaper", but I assume there is a subtle difference between the two.

Can someone tell me what that difference is?

Know someone who might be able to answer this question?

Hi Kira-san,

Please refer to the following: 

新聞 is the newspaper for everyday's reading.
新聞紙 is the new paper for printing news on or the overdue newspaper, only used as package functions and so on.

Ahhh, I see. So, in a sense, could it be said that 新聞紙 is the newspaper-paper?
