- ,half `ti·tle /,hAf`taItl-/ noun
- (book) A page in a
finished book which bears only the title of the book and perhaps
some design elements. When a half title is included in a book, it
is in addition to the title page. A half-title page, when there is
one, often is the first printed page in the book, on the recto of the leaf immediately
preceding the title page. Alternately, the half title may be the
last page of front matter, immediately preceding the first page of
the body of the work. A half title does not occur in

- The title of an article or entry in an
encyclopedia or dictionary or similar reference work, often in a

- At this site: headwords are alphabetized
without regard to the stress markings, without regard to whether
letters are capitalized (A = a), and as if accented characters did
not have accents (é = e). Since apostrophes can occur within
headwords, the grave accent (`) precedes the syllable with the
primary stress. This is not in agreement with the
ASCII-IPA representation of the pronunciation which uses the
apostrophe (in ASCII, identical with the single quote) for primary
stress. Secondary stress is indicated in both systems by preceding
the syllable with a comma (,). When an unstressed syllable is not
the first syllable and is not preceded by a hyphen (-) or a space,
it is preceded by a raised (or middle) dot (·). The headword for
most usage articles are not syllabified, and many use the solidus
(/) between words that are the subject of the article. Personal
names are sorted by family name, but the headword is in the natural
order (in Western cultures the given name is first) or in the order
that occurs most often in English-language literature.
