      Word's red squiggles are used only for the spelling of words that don't happen to be in its dictionary. (If its "grammar checker" objected, the squiggles would be green.) You can add it to your Custom Dictionary and it will never complain again.

      The 11th Collegiate doesn't have "titulary," but that's certainly the form the noun takes.

      Either titular or titulary may be used adjectivally.  It is probably being underlined by Word due to its use as a noun.

      Isn't the adjective titular?

      Emne: [ANE-2] "titulary" ?

      Dear ANE,
      I have a question which has been bothering me for some time and
      it just
      came up again and I thought that there might be amongst you the proper
      person to ask (Robert? Peter? Anyone else).

      I have often heard the term "titulary" used by assyriologists to
      designate the list of royal titles leading off royal inscriptions or the
      corpus of divine and royal titles in general. I've used the term in my own
      writings and
      I don't recall having it corrected or questioned. But when I type the
      word on Word it is underlined red by the
      spell check, and check of the word in my Random House-Websters dictionary
      shows that this articular usage
      is unknown. Can anyone set me straight on this matter? Can you suggest an
