titled vs. entitled

titled vs. entitled: What's the difference?

In the context of stating the title of a book or anything else, titled and entitled are commonly used to mean the same thing: having a certain title, as in The book is titled/entitled Moby Dick. Some people object to this use of entitled, claiming that the word should only be used for the sense that means “having (or acting as if one has) the right or claim to something.” Such people are entitled to their opinion, but the use of entitled in the context of titles is very common and perfectly acceptable.

[ tahyt-ld ]
