Background/Objectives: The study deals with the headlines, which reflect the linguistic picture of the world which has a main place in communication between the author and the reader. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Several methods and techniques have been used in the study: Collection and contextual analysis of theoretical material on the subject of research, as well as a comparison, compilation and statistical analysis. Findings: This article discusses the study of the nature of a language picture of the world, which is based on the historical development of the formation of the concept, its ethno-cultural characteristics and differences in the cognitive world. These differences demonstrate language feature and its influence on the formation of the language person who contributed to various environmental factors in the perception of the world and representatives of the two peoples of the same ethnic group, who are at different ends of the world. This was the nature of the prerequisites for opening a language picture of the world that has more relevance on this point. A study of this issue on the basis of journalistic headlines helps to visualize the relationship between language, picture of the world and the time; because it is the newspaper headlines that are the linguistic structures that most clearly and immediately reflect all the innovations and trends in this area. Application/Improvements: The novelty of the proposed method consists in the fact that this issue has not yet been studied properly, and the consideration of newspaper headlines as the object of research will help to achieve new results in the comparison and analysis of the interrelation between language and particular of world view of the people.
