Stringer can have different meanings, including:

  • In journalism, a stringer is a freelance journalist, who is paid for each piece of published or broadcast work, rather than receiving a regular salary. They are heavily relied upon by most television news organizations. They mostly specialize in breaking news. In American newspapers the word carries a connotation of no-nonsense professionalism as compared to "freelancer," a term more likely to be used by newcomers to the business. The etymology of the word is uncertain. Newspapers once paid stringers per inch of printed text they generated, and one theory says the length of this text was measured against a string. More likely is the usage given in the Oxford English Dictionary: a person who strings words together.
  • In geology, a stringer is an irregular filament or a narrow vein of one or more minerals traversing a rock mass.
  • In metallurgy, a stringer is an elongated body of microconstituents or foreign material aligned in the direction of working (usually hot rolling) in wrought materials. In most cases, the material of the stringers is sulfide, or clot gated oxide. Presence of stringers in materials is undesirable, as they cause the material to be brittle and with anisotropic properties.
  • In construction a stringer is a horizontal member used to connect upright members, as in the frame of a building. Usually they are long, relatively thin pieces which give support and definition to the skin of a structure.
  • In angling, a stringer is a length of fishing line, wire, or chain, to which a fisherman will attach his catch.
