A title for a figure or table packs its meaning into a limited space. It does this by using a language structure called a NOUN GROUP. A noun group is a group of words that has the same function as a noun, that is, it names or identifies a person, place or thing. A title usually consists of a single noun group. Within a noun group, one word is usually central to the meaning of the group and this is called the HEAD NOUN. Other words can occur before and after the head to add to its meaning.
