Headline English

Newspaper headlines look different from regular English sentences because headline writers don't want to use too many words. Headlines often leave out grammatical structures like articles and auxiliary verbs. They use simple forms of verbs to describe something that has happened. They use infinitive forms to describe something that is going to happen. Headlines also use abbrieviations and idioms.
