A selection of headlines from stories in the news. They use English in a way that might think is intended to confuse but it’s all perfectly clear to the native speaker.


The News of the World doesn’t waste many words in its headline on a story about actor Matt Smith, who plays Dr Who in the BBC TV sci-fi drama. Speculating on the gossip that Smith may marry his model girlfriend Daisy Lowe, the headline reads ‘I Who’.


“I who,” is a play on the answer usually given during the wedding ceremony, “I do”.
