Broadsheets and tabloids

As a general rule, broadsheets are printed on larger paper, have longer articles and focus on more serious issues.

Tabloids, on the other hand, are smaller and have larger headlines, more photos and shorter articles, often of a sensational nature.

 

Which are easiest to read?

The two kinds of newspaper present different challenges. Broadsheets can be difficult to read because they use high-level language; tabloids contain a lot of informal, idiomatic language that can be equally difficult.

Both broadsheets and tabloids use a journalistic style of writing - particularly in headlines - that is different to other forms of writing. This includes the use of puns, and a few differences in grammar and vocabulary.
