Honestly sometimes I can't understand headlines anymore.

Seriously they make too many nouns in to verbs and vice versa. It’s hard to understand without articles:

Pinochet purges arrests ordered
Lockerbie questions dog UK premier

(from the BBC)

I thought Pinochet had somehow come back to life and that Lockerbie was questioning a dog.

  1. I don’t know why they write like that…

    I must admit, most of the time, headlines catch me eye because I don’t exactly understand what they mean!

    I guess it’s an incentive to read the whole article.

What do you think?
