AbstractThe language of modern Arabic press is developing extensively, which manifests itself in the special syntactical structure of headlines. The article describes the communicative organization of conjunctive structures in the position of modern Arabic newspaper headlines. The academic novelty of the paper lies in the topic of Arabic newspaper headlines, which hasn’t received adequate scientific attention in native Arab studies yet. Besides, the conjunctive coordinating structures selected for research are analyzed not formally, but in the context of actual division of the sentence. The article considers the structural peculiarities of conjunctive headlines and the functions of word order, coordinating conjunction and punctuation marks in their communicative division. The results of the study show that Arabic conjunctive headlines have a multilevel communicative structure, where word order plays a big role in the formation of communicative organization of such constructions. A special emphasis is placed on the functions of punctuation marks in the delivery of non-verbal context of situation. The study of the examined phenomenon enables not only to clarify the peculiarities of syntactic models of Arabic coordinating headlines, but also makes a weighty contribution to the description of syntax of written texts in modern Arabic.
