I saw this on TV. I’m not making it up. A headline read “Casey Antony’s attorney pens book entitled Presumed Guilty, Casey Anthony: The Inside Story.”
Why do people confuse title and entitle? Entitled means deserved or earned. Although the author may have earned the right to write the book, he didn’t entitle it. He titled it. He gave it a title.
If entitle and title trip you up, remember it this way: If you write a book, you’re entitled to title it. (Of course, the publisher is entitled to re-title the book after you sign the contract).
You’re entitled to leave a comment. Happy writing.
