Answer: Line spectrum is a general case and there are different kinds of line emission spectrum or line absorption spectrum. The first one refers to a line in the spectrum due to the emission phenomena (emission of radiation) and the second one is due to the absorption phenomena (absorption of radiation by a molecule or an atom).

He said that all these different names pretty much refer to the same thing.
