A Study on Taiwanese TV News Headlines and their Pedagogical Implications.
This study investigates the linguistic features of Taiwanese TV news head-lines. Results show that main subheads draw attention with fancy fragmented information. Lower subheads provide plain and complete details. Small subheads portray the gist throughout the reports. Auxiliary subheads supply subsidiary language components. Headlines are also characterized by colored division of functions. Chinese characters are often abbreviated with creative symbols or icons. Distinctive expressions such as jargons, slangs, proverbs, coined words are prevalent. Compressed sentence structures highlight the coherence of stories with small clauses. Function-word omission, pivotal construction, and non-standard grammar are common. This study also introduces directions for teaching Chinese news headlines. It is hoped that the conclusions may provide insight for the re-search and teaching of news language.
