When newspapers first appeared, they were not called newspapers but the letters, NSEW were printed at the top of the paper. The letters stood for North, South, East and West and were meant to show that the information printed in the paper had been collected from all over the world.
               One day, the owner of a paper, rearranged the letters N-S-E-W to N-E-W-S and printed them at the top of the page.
               Now people had a word they could pronounce and 'NEWS' became a popular word. That is how we got the words 'news' and 'newspaper'.
