You can add comments to the table or to columns in the table.  The command for adding comment to tables is]
 COMMENT ON TABLE [schema.]table IS 'text'

The command for adding comments to columns in a table is
   COMMENT ON COLUMN [schema.]table.column IS 'text'

You can view the comments by using the data dictionary views

DBA_COL_COMMENTS     ALL_COL_COMMENTS     USER_COL_COMMENTS  - For Couimns
DBA_TAB_COMMENTS     ALL_TAB_COMMENTS     USER_TAB_COMMENTS - For Tables
