In comedy is used to name the pause you make to create a big dramatic effect in your speech, or in your performance if you're acting. But in a newspaper... I think it could also refer to something of deep importance, but I'm just guessing with this one.


It just means an awkward pause in a conversation.


A pause which is full of meaning. But you have to work out the meaning, and develop the meaning inside yourself.
