    I Think This Title Is Grammatically Incorrect, Is it?

    Hi, teachers. the following is taken from table of content of a contract template. It's one of the many titles of the chapters.

    Failure To Agreement Dispute Adjudication Board
    Dispute Adjudication Board is name of a board.

    I find the structure "Failure to+ noun(agreement)+noun(Dispute Adjudication Board)" wierd.

    Is it grammatically correct? I tend to think not. How do you teachers think?

    Thanks

    Bird.

    You are right, it is wrong. Failure to + verb or failure of + noun would be correct.
