Abstract

The purpose of this study is to determine the structure of the conflict headlines of fake news, placed in print and electronic newspapers. The object of the study are newspaper headings, the subject is the headline structure, which provides a conscious character of the creation or display by the correspondent of the conflict situation. The material was selected from a few Ukrainian-language, Russian-language and English-language newspapers. Methods of cognitive and structural-semantic analysis, as well as a descriptive method, were used. As a result of the research, the structural and semantic priorities of the headlines were acknowledged, in which deliberately false information was created to cause a conflict situation in a modern informational space. We consider the following as the conclusions: 1) the headings of conflict-related newspaper texts do not correspond to the classical requirements of conflict communication, because they do not represent the conflict, but only provoke it; 2) the usual syntactic structure of untruthful headings is a sentence in which the elementary components of its semantic structure are more likely to conflict: subject, predicate, object; 3) the headings in which the journalist manipulates the various components of the semantic structure of the sentence are often represented by constructions of direct speech.
