Titled or entitled?

 By Mary Morel

Reader’s question: Which should you say?

The book is titled …
or
The book is entitled …

Answer: I think you can use either. The Macquarie Dictionary gives one definition of entitled as ‘to call by a particular title or name; name’.

Not everyone agrees. Some people think you should use entitled to mean ‘given a title, claim or right to something’ and titled for titles.
