Hi everyone! I was wondering wether the word "survey" could mean the same as "paper" or "topic" in the following sentence: "(...) we shall analyse the rise of the novel in the second half of the XVIIIth century. In order to do so, this survey will be developed into seven main points." It's a kind of topic designed to be read to an audience. It's intended to be part of the introduction to refer to the paper as "survey". Thank you in advance.
