Is COMMENT a reserved word in Oracle? If so, how can I name a field in a table 'COMMENT'?

As you can see below, COMMENT is a reserved word in Oracle.
SQL> select keyword from v$reserved_words
  2  where keyword = 'COMMENT';

I would seriously reconsider trying to create a table with a column name that is a reserved word. Any reason why this column can't be called COMMENTS or USER_COMMENTS?

There are Comments. Add yours.

TIP: Want to include a code block in your comment? Use <pre> or <code> tags around the desired text. Ex: <code>insert code</code>
