If "Researchers hunt for a 12-billion-year-old signal " were written as "Researchers are hunting for a 12-billion-year-old signal ", what is the difference?


Context:
Researchers hunt for a 12-billion-year-old signal that marks the end of the post Big Bang “dark age”

@oristarA,
The first way indicates it's a headline of some kind.

Headlines often leave out words when the meaning of it is clear, in order to concentrate on the important aspects.

@chai2,
Thank you. Smile



Okay. There appears some reasons in your replies, guys.

Modification is like decoration. Here a new holiday is coming and we will decorate our Chrismas tree with fancy trinkets.

Can trinkets themselves be called decoration itself? Not really. They are components for decoration.



By the same token, can methyl groups be called modification itself? It seems not really. They are components for modification.



Not sit back or sit down? "Lie down" sounds rather suggestive to me.



Thank you.
