Newspapers have recently become attractive objects of interest to linguists, but little research has been done thus far on news discourse of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The present study contributes to filling this gap by reporting results from a corpus-based study of early English-language newspaper headlines. The analysis reveals th...
