they (usually) have to be short and concise, and their function (and this appliesnot only to sensationalist newspapers and the so-called "gutter press") is todraw the reader’s attention to the article and make him/her want to read the body text.Basically, headlines fall into three categories. The first one is theheadline that uses the Present tense to indicate that someone has donesomething. The second is the headline that uses the Past participle to show thatsomething has been done. And finally, there is the headline that uses theinfinitive to show that something is going to happen.It should be pointed out that for reasons of shortness and conciseness,supposedly superfluous words are left out of headlines. This concerns, in particular, the definite and indefinite articles, so it is rare to see the words "a","an" or "the" in a headline.As we can see, headlines tend to omit function words (determiners, prepositions etc.) and concentrate on the information-rich content words, muchlike a telegram. The resulting brevity of headlines and the fact that for manyaphasic people function words present great difficulty means that headlinesseem to be relatively easy: hence the system does not attempt to simplify them.With regard to the main body of the stories, sentences tend to be around 32-35words long in the broadsheets while the tabloids and local papers average 16-20 words. Research done by Kniffka H., Bantas A., D.&Douglas A., Fowler,R., Evance, Bell A., Galperin I.R., Van Dijk, Crystal D., Mardh I., focuses ongrammar and stylistics features of publicist articles in English and Romanian.The Diploma Paper is devoted to the study of linguistic peculiarities of newspaper headlines and to the analysis of their translation peculiarities.Taking into consideration the above mentioned, the main goal of this paper was set in the following way: to study the newspaper headlines on thewhole and to analyse the linguistic peculiarities of newspaper article headlines.
