Translation:The newspaper always talks about the economy.
Do newspapers really speak, or is this just an English idiom?
Other languages use this figurative sense too. There is a logic: Basic human communication is to talk in front of other people. If this is not possible, we use books, newspapers, phone, the Web and TV. The original words comes from humans which can speak. We write words in fat or UPPERcase when speaking loudly.
Dankon, Bert. Mi komprenas kaj konsentas.
The defined article "la" means that the word after "la" was already mentionned or is known to you. «La gazeto» is a given magasine one speaks about. «Ekonomio" is aluded in generally, as a large theme.
I think yes. 'Space' is without 'the' sinces it is not well defined and limited.
I suggest as an alternative solution: "The newspaper speaks always about economy."
