- n. An inscription placed on or over something to distinguish or specialize it; an affixed individualizing term or phrase.
- n. A prefixed designating word, phrase, or combination of phrases; an initial written or printed designation; the distinguishing name attached to a written production of any kind: as, the title of a book, a chapter or section of a book, etc.; the title of a poem. The title of a book in the fullest sense includes all the matter in the title-page preceding the author's name or whatever stands in place of it. It may be either a single word or a short phrase, or be divided into a leading and a subordinate title connected by or; or it may be extended by way of description to the larger part of a closely printed page, according to a practice formerly very common. The title by which a book is quoted, however, is nearly always the shortest form that will serve to designate it distinctively. For bibliographical purposes, especially in the cases of old, rare, and curious books, the entire title-page, word for word and point for point, is regarded as the title, and when copied the actual typography is often indicated, as by a vertical bar after each word which ends a line, etc.
- n. Same as title-page, in some technical or occasional uses.
- n. In bookbinding, the panel on the back of which the name of the book is imprinted.

- n. A characterizing term of address; a descriptive name or epithet.
- n. Specifically, a distinguishing appellation belonging to a person by right of rank or endowment, or assigned to him as a mark of respect or courtesy. ; ; ; ; . Titles in this sense may be classified as— titles of office, whether hereditary or limited to chosen incumbents, as emperor or empress, king or queen, president, judge, mayor, bishop or archbishop, rector, deacon, general, admiral, captain, etc.
- n. Titular or aristocratic rank; titled nobility or dignity.
- n. A grade or degree of fineness; especially, the number of carats by which the fineness of gold is expressed.
- n. A claim; a right; a designated ground of claim; a conferred or acquired warrant; an attributed privilege or franchise.
- n. An inherent or established right; a fixed franchise; a just or recognized claim.
- n. In law: Ownership: as, the title was not in the husband, but in his wife; her title was subject to encumbrance.
- n. The channel through which an owner has acquired his right; the collection of facts from which, by the operation of law, his right arises: as, an abstract of title sets forth the chain of instruments, etc., by which the owner became owner.
- n. Absolute ownership; the unencumbered fee. In a contract to convey title or to warrant the title, the word is usually understood in this sense, in which it includes the right of property, the right of possession, and actual possession.
- n. The instrument which is evidence of a right; a title-deed. Title is more appropriately used of real property; ownership of personal, but also to some extent of real property. Among the older commentators on Roman law it was usual to call title (titulus) the contract or other legal act which was the remote cause of a person's acquiring property (for example, a contract of sale), while the immediate cause (for example, delivery) was called
modus, In order to have ownership there had to be a perfect titulus and modus. This doctrine is alien to the Roman jurists, and is now universally repudiated.
- n. Hence, a source or evidence of any right or privilege; that which establishes a claim or an attribution: as, Gray's “Elegy” is his chief title to fame; his discharge is his title of exemption.
- n. Eccles.: Originally, a district in the city of Rome with taxable revenue; hence, a district in that city attached to a parish church; a Roman parish church, as distinguished from a basilica or an oratory. The clergy belonging to these churches received the epithet “cardinal,” whence the title cardinal.
- n. A fixed sphere of work and source of income, required as a condition of ordination. Since the Council of Chalcedon, a. d. 451, it has always been the rule to refuse to admit to ordination any one not appointed to officiate in a particular church. Since the eleventh century a title in the present sense has been expressly required. The term has gradually changed its connotation from the idea of locality to that of assured support and of a warrant for orders. The Roman Catholic Church requires as title for orders nomination to a benefice sufficient for maintenance, sufficient private income, a guarantee of support from some person or persons, or monastic poverty as entitling to maintenance by the order. In the Church of England a cure of souls, chaplaincy, fellowship, or the like is required, or residence as master of arts with sufficient private means. In the American Episcopal Church engagement with some church, parish, or congregation, with some diocesan or recognized general missionary society, as instructor in some incorporated institution, or as chaplain in the national army or navy is requisite for admission to priest's orders.
