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

‘A Wheel Addiction’ is the Daily Star headline in a story about Paul Riddick, 67, from Shefford, Bedfordshire, who they reckon must be the most prolific car buyer in the UK. ¬†Since passing his driving test in 1959, he has owned more than 400 family vehicles, averaging eight a year. The headline substitutes the word ‘Wheel’ for ‘Real’.
