Product Description


"In a practical way, the study addresses... how national, political, cultural, religious, and socio-ideological views of the source and target audience affect not only the function of press headlines but also their content and even length." - Prof. Basil Hatim American University of Sharjah "To my knowledge this is the most systematic, most explicit, most detailed and theoretically best informed study of headlines to date. It is not just a comparative study of English and Arabic headlines, or a study of translation practices." - Prof. Teun van Dijk Pompeu Fabra University"
