Q: What is the difference between list and listing ?
A: They don't usually mean the same thing. I think listing is used when describing a list that is featured in an article. "There is a job listing in the newspaper". Listing often times is referring to one thing not a list of things. Such as the job in the newspaper example. Here, the listing is talking about one specific job posting.

However list always means a set of things. A shopping list is several things written down in order for someone to buy. It makes no sense to say "a shopping listing."

In short, a list is a series of things. A listing is a single entry on a list. Hope this helps!
