    3. title page.
    4. a descriptive or distinctive appellation, esp. one belonging to a person by right of rank, office, attainment, etc.: the title of Lord Mayor.
    5. Sports. the championship: He won the title three years in a row.
    6. an established or recognized right to something.
    7. a ground or basis for a claim.
    8. anything that provides a ground or basis for a claim.
    9. Law.
    a. legal right to the possession of property, esp. real property.
    b. the ground or evidence of such right.
    c. the instrument constituting evidence of such right.
    d. a unity combining all of the requisites to complete legal ownership.
    e. a division of a statute, lawbook, etc., esp. one larger than an article or section.

    Anonymous the use of the word is correct, ie “to call by a particular title or name”. e.g. What was the book entitled? Thanks.
