Wikipedia is not a dictionary. Wikipedia is not a place to define words or phrases and is not to be written in the style of a dictionary. But this does not mean that a page title that contains a dictionary entry needs to be deleted.
Ways to solve dictionary entries
Most Wikipedia titles are nouns (people, places, or things). In most cases, a subject should be titled as a noun.
|Title||Text||Right or wrong|
