The paper is devoted to the study of diachronic syntax in the Economist magazine at the level of composite and semi-composite sentences. The purpose of this research is to study functioning and interaction of composite and semi-composite sentences in modern English newspaper style, as well as identifying trends in the development of syntactic structures. Additionally, problems of definition, form and semantics, criteria of classification of composite and semi-composite sentences were identified. The relevance of this study is justified by the fact that there is no sufficiently clear and complete picture of English newspaper style syntax as the studies are mainly based on the texts belonging to belles-lettres style
