GONZALEZ RODRIGUEZ, MARÍA JOSÉ. NOUN PHRASE COMPLEXITY IN THE DESCRIPTION AND DIFFERENTIATION OF LANGUAGE VARIETIES: A STUDY ON STYLISTICS. RLA [online]. 2006, vol.44, n.2, pp.29-46. ISSN 0718-4883.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48832006000200003.

This article concentrates on the notion of complexity of the noun phrase, stressing its relevance as a style marker within newspaper English in a corpus of headlines from the British daily newspapers The Times, Daily Express and The Sun, with special reference to hard news stories. Noun phrase complexity is examined under the theoretical framework reported in Quirk et al. (1972, 1985). On the basis of structural analysis of noun phrases, I focus upon the variation of simple and complex noun phrases. In this way, the main aim of this work is to analyse possible differences between noun phrases in verbal and nominal headlines, and to show which types of headlines are preferred in which types of newspapers to an extent that is significant for the characterisation of the variety of headlines exhibited by these different newspapers

Palabras clave : Noun phrase complexity; hard news; headline; style; social context.
