Gain new knowledge
Recently, I gained a few knowledge in learning news English.
The tense used in the news headlines is very different from the tense in general English.
Take the following news as an example :
The headline is
Taiwanese weightlifter Kuo Hsing-chun breaks world record
According to the description of the news content, it stated about what happened in the past.
So the correct writing of this headline should be this：
Taiwanese weightlifter Kuo Hsing-chun broke the world record
news source https://chinapost.nownews.com/20170822-195
This is a special usage of news English.
I am happy to know it .
