Abstract

The present article deals with the notion of discourse in general, and newspaper discourse in
particular. Newspaper discourse is considered to be a special form of the language functioning, the
aim of which is not only the transferring of information, but also the manipulating of thoughts and
views of a recipient. The research pays attention to lexical and grammatical features of British
newspaper discourse. The paper analyses the titles of the newspaper texts, key word-combinations as
the media of stereotypical information; determines the role of phraseological units for intensification
of nominative and stylistic content of the utterances. It characterizes the syntactic typological features
of modern British newspapers. The results of the research prove that the main features of British
newspaper discourse are expressiveness, a concise and evaluative character of information
