Typing The article/text/writing was innovative in any translation software gives numerous results. After looking up the words article, text, and writing in the dictionary, I found too many options and so, decided to choose the most basic word that would get the meaning of a visible piece of text through.
I need a word that in general can encompass things such as writings in a cave, an article in the newspaper, a notice on the notice board, an essay written by a student, etc.
Or there are too many to sift through and I should memorize them separately. BTW, I found きじ and. てくすと but am not sure if they can collectively handle broad meanings.
Is there a general term for texts in japanese like fluid is for everything that flows?
