Analyzing Structure of a Newspaper Article

The structure of a daily newspaper article is very important. A decently organized article ought to be useful for the reader to take after and understand the article, and above all, it should engage the reader, and influence them to read full article.  The following articles, 'Germany grieves for a hero who dared not admit struggle with mental illness.' from the daily paper, “The Times”, and '"It was a real thrill", says tourist who accidently confronted with 18ft white shark and was nearly eaten.' Taken from “The Guardian”, will be contrasted with one another and examined.

The features of both articles are similar in the way that they both use sensational, eye catching words to grab the consideration of the spectator. The headline of the Germany story utilizes the words "hero" and "mental illness" which would make the spectator address how they could be connected and convince them to read on. In the shark article, the sentence '18ft great white shark' and quote, "it was a true rush" are incorporated. This is fascinating for the onlooker, and would make them need to discover all the more about their experience. The opening section of an article ought to quickly incorporate who was included, what happened, why it happened and where and when it happened. The Germany article incorporates each of the five of these focuses, while the shark article just incorporates who what and where. On the other hand, by excluding all the data, the reader is more inclined to peruse on to discover all the more about the story as the subtle element gets more created in the accompanying passages.

The end passages of the articles are comparable in the way that the less imperative and less important data is included towards the end. They have both been composed utilizing the upset pyramid structure, significance the data is organized in slipping request of vitality. The most paramount material is set at the start of the story and the less critical data takes after. It is successful on the grounds that it tells the spectator rapidly what they need.
