Hi all,
Please tell me how to write a good newspaper title or slogan?
I have a slogan like that: " Put your target highly in success". Is it wrong or acceptable? Help me!
Thanks

Do you mean headline? (Titles to newspaper articles are called headlines.) How about:
  • Aim High!

What do you think?

:)

Thanks for your suggestion. However, I don't want to change the first letter in the slogan because I want to create the word PYTHIS from these letters on purpose. In that slogan, I wonder that whether the position of adverb "highly" is right ? and whether that statement is acceptable or meaningful
And can you tell me the difference between high and highly, aim and target?
Please feel free to correct my writting!

I want to create a newacronym, PYTHIS. In my slogan, I wonder whether the position of adverb "highly" is right and also whether the statement Put your target highly in success
is acceptable or meaningful?

First, use highly to express degree; use high to express height.

Recommend highly
Put something up high
Put something high on your list
Put something highly (ungrammatical)

Second, a target is something you aim for. Replace 'in' with 'for':

Aim for success
Aim high for success

Third, the statement Place your target highly in success is not meaningful. highly should be high, target in should be aim for:

Aim high for success = AHFS

Sorry it doesn't match PYTHIS. I don't know what to suggest. :oops:

Hi,
I am happy to see your explanation at once. The Asian often feel afraid of asking teacher in class because of their timidity, so I think my English will be better with your help. :)
Athough you haven't given me a suggestion to make a newacromy Pythis, but you show me sth more interesting.
Thanks again

You're welcome, and don't feel timid here. Ask as many questions as you like, no matter how simple or stupid you may feel they sound. Challenge us, too. :D
