Transcript of "Chapter 3 headlines"

  2. 2. What is your impression of headlines? <ul><li>A headline is text at the top of a newspaper article, indicating the nature of the article below it. </li></ul><ul><li>Headlines are written in much larger type size than the article text, and often in a different font entirely. Headlines are often in sentence case, although title case is often used in the USA. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Headline conventions include: </li></ul><ul><li>normally using present tense even when discussing events that happened in the recent past; </li></ul><ul><li>omitting forms of the verb &quot;to be&quot; in certain contexts; </li></ul><ul><li>removing short articles like &quot;a&quot; and &quot;the&quot;. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Most newspapers feature a very large headline on their front page, dramatically describing the biggest news of the day. Words chosen for headlines are often short. </li></ul><ul><li>A headline may also be followed by a smaller secondary headline, often called subhead, which gives more information. </li></ul><ul><li>Headlines are generally written by editors, but may also be written by the writer or the page layout designer. </li></ul>
