I'm sending a message to a group of people informing them of an edit to one of their documents now mentions a reference to multiple documents and their titles. There is a total of four documents with four different titles. Should I write either:

  • the documents titles

  • the document titles

  • or the titles of each document

Which would be most grammatically correct?

  • I would recommend bullet three since it's more specific. Bullet one seems like vague info and bullet two doesn't have the plural 'S' behind the word 'document'. May 7, 2021 at 13:27
  • Bullet one is missing an apostrophe. May 19, 2021 at 22:11
  • Questions about grammar are off-topic. writing.stackexchange.com/help/on-topic

You should better go with "the titles of each document"! Its sounds okay and looks Professional

    Why do think it looks professional? It would make a much better answer if you explained that.

  • the titles of each document might look professional but it would only be correct if each document had multiple titles. More usually each document would have only one title and one would write the title of each document. Oct 19, 2021 at 10:27
