8 grammar rules for writing newspaper headlines: 1. Use present simple tense for past events The present tense is quick and current, and helps to emphasise the action happening, rather than its completion. Parliament confirms new stray dog policy Lion escapes zoo If we want to demonstrate the result of an action, or that something was completed, we can use perfect tenses, and for changing events, the present continuous may be used. However, these tenses are often shown by using participles alone.
2. Leave out auxiliary verbs With perfect, progressive and passive structures, auxiliary verbs are not necessary. This makes some headlines appear to be in the past tense, when actually the headlines use past participles, or particles, not the past simple. Similarly, changing events are represented by the present participle on its own. New policy decided by Parliament (New policy has been decided by Parliament) Temperatures rising as climate changes (temperatures are rising) 3. Use infinitives for future events Parliament to decide new policy tomorrow President to visit France for further talks Using the infinitive, a future time is not always necessary to demonstrate the future tense in headlines.
4. Leave out articles (a, an, the) Prime Minister hikes Alps for charity (The Prime Minister hiked the Alps) Man releases rabid dog in park (A man released a rabid dog in a park) 5. Leave out “to be” Residents unhappy about new road (residents are unhappy) 6. Leave out “to say” Mr Jones: “They’re not taking my house!” Reported speech is usually represented by a colon, or a hyphen, with the subject introduced with ‘on’. This includes leaving out other verbs such as comment, tell, argue, announce, shout – unless the act of speaking needs emphasising, for instance to demonstrate a promise or official policy.
7. Replace conjunctions with punctuation Police arrest serial killer – close case on abductions Fire in bakery: hundreds dead As with reporting speech, commas, colons, semi-colons, hyphens and so on can replace all conjunctions, or some joining verbs, to join clauses. Commas may also be used to join nouns (more common in American English). 8. Use figures for numbers 7 days to Christmas – shoppers go mad
