British newspapers are much smaller than they used to be and their readers are often in a hurry ,so newspapermen write as few words as possible .They tell their readers at once what happened ,where ,when and how it happened and what was the result : how many people were killed ,what change was done and so on .Readers want the fact(事实) set out as fully and accurately as possible .Readers are also interested in the people who have seen the accident. So a newspaperman always likes to get some information (信息)from someone who was there, which can be given in the persons own words .Because he can use only a few words ,the newspaperman must choose those words carefully ,every one must be effective(有效). Instead of he called out in a loud voice, he writes he shouted instead of the loose stones rolled noisily down the side of the mountain, he will write they thundered down the mountainside. Because many of the readers arent very clever, and most of them are in a hurry.
