Why is there no article? Please see this news: http://www.dailypost.co.uk/news/north-wales-news/2008/05/03/dog-saves-woman-from-river-in-st-asaph-55578-20856294/ I'm trying to understand, why there are no "a" or "the" before "dog" and "woman" in the headline? Thank you! The headline reads: Dog saves woman from river in St Asaph

It's a newspaper headline! Articles (and verbs) are often omitted. That's just the way we do it in English. Newspaper headlines have their own rules.
